These macros provide a portable method to determine the limits of some of the standard integer and floating point types.

#define G_MININT8 ((gint8) 0x80)

The minimum value which can be held in a gint8.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXINT8 ((gint8) 0x7f)

The maximum value which can be held in a gint8.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXUINT8 ((guint8) 0xff)

The maximum value which can be held in a guint8.

Since 2.4

#define G_MININT16 ((gint16) 0x8000)

The minimum value which can be held in a gint16.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXINT16 ((gint16) 0x7fff)

The maximum value which can be held in a gint16.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXUINT16 ((guint16) 0xffff)

The maximum value which can be held in a guint16.

Since 2.4

#define G_MININT32 ((gint32) 0x80000000)

The minimum value which can be held in a gint32.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXINT32 ((gint32) 0x7fffffff)

The maximum value which can be held in a gint32.

Since 2.4

#define G_MAXUINT32 ((guint32) 0xffffffff)

The maximum value which can be held in a guint32.

Since 2.4

#define G_MININT64 ((gint64) G_GINT64_CONSTANT(0x8000000000000000))

The minimum value which can be held in a gint64.

#define G_MAXINT64 G_GINT64_CONSTANT(0x7fffffffffffffff)

The maximum value which can be held in a gint64.

#define G_MAXUINT64 G_GINT64_CONSTANT(0xffffffffffffffffU)

The maximum value which can be held in a guint64.

#define G_MINFLOAT FLT_MIN

The minimum positive value which can be held in a gfloat.

If you are interested in the smallest value which can be held in a gfloat, use -G_MAX_FLOAT.

#define G_MINDOUBLE DBL_MIN

The minimum positive value which can be held in a gdouble.

If you are interested in the smallest value which can be held in a gdouble, use -G_MAXDOUBLE.
