The basic integer types at various sizes. The s or u prefix specifies a signed or an unsigned integer, respectively; the ones with no prefix are signed.
Aliases for basic integer types. The _byte aliases correspond to _int8. The _short and _word aliases correspond to _int16. The _int aliases correspond to _int32. The _long aliases correspond to either _int32 or _int64, depending on the platform. Similarly, the _intptr aliases correspond to either _int32 or _int64, depending on the platform.
For cases where speed matters and where you know that the integer is small enough, the types _fixnum and _ufixnum are similar to _intptr and _uintptr but assume that the quantities fit in Racket’s immediate integers (i.e., not bignums).
Similar to _fixnum/_ufixnum, but based on _int/_uint instead of _intptr/_uintptr, and coercions from C are checked to be in range.
The _float and _double types represent the corresponding C types. Both single- and double-precision Racket numbers are accepted for conversion via both _float and _double, while both _float and _double coerce C values to double-precision Racket numbers. The type _double* coerces any Racket real number to a C double.
