Memory representation of Fundamental Data types:
One of the most important reason for declaring a variable as a particular data type is to allocate appropriate space in memory. As per the stored program concept, every data should be accommodated in the main memory before they are processed. So, C++ compiler allocates specific memory space for each and every data handled according to the compiler’s standards.
The following Table 9.5 shows how much of memory space is allocated for each fundamental data type. Remember that, every data is stored inside the computer memory in the form of binary digits (See Unit I Chapter 2).
