Hi all! I wrote up a quick blog post to introduce a friend of mine to understanding a little type theory. I’d appreciate it if people would critique the piece so I can make it more accurate:
That is not accurate — Python integers don’t have a fixed size any longer. It used to be the case (in Python 2.x) that the
int type was a machine sized integer while the
long type could grow to any size. With Python 3,
int became what was
long in Python 2.
Oh nice, I did not know that. I’ll update the post.
