Hi,


I want to know, how enums are handled in gcc. How do we map an enum value to the corresponding integer size.

What does the option -fshort-enums does. Plz explain me in detail.

Given an enum value, how do we calculate or determine that what size should the enum occupy.

Does all the enum have a same size of 4 bytes or does it varies depending on the initializing value?


Regards
Gaurav
