!!!!Description

A @@short@@ is a 16-bit data-type.

On all Arduinos (ATMega and ARM based) a @@short@@ stores a 16-bit (2-byte) value. This yields a range of -32,768 to 32,767 (minimum value of -2^15 and a maximum value of (2^15) - 1). \\

!!!!Example

[=short ledPin = 13;=]

!!!!Syntax

[=short var = val;=]

*var - your short variable name
*val - the value you assign to that variable
