# long

suggest changeDenotes a signed integer type that is at least as long as `int`

, and whose range includes at least -2147483647 to +2147483647, inclusive (that is, -(2^31 - 1) to +(2^31 - 1)). This type can also be written as `long int`

.

`const long approx_seconds_per_year = 60L*60L*24L*365L;`

The combination `long double`

denotes a floating point type, which has the widest range out of the three floating point types.

```
long double area(long double radius) {
const long double pi = 3.1415926535897932385L;
return pi*radius*radius;
}
```

When the `long`

specifier occurs twice, as in `long long`

, it denotes a signed integer type that is at least as long as `long`

, and whose range includes at least -9223372036854775807 to +9223372036854775807, inclusive (that is, -(2^63 - 1) to +(2^63 - 1)).

```
// support files up to 2 TiB
const long long max_file_size = 2LL << 40;
```
