sbyte?

Does Arduino have a close alternative to sbyte? Or is short the smallest signed value type possible?

unsigned char or byte are the smallest addressable unsigned types

Awesome. Thanks.

Sorry, brain fart, char is the smallest signed data type.

Well if you expect to move your code to another platform, I would use signed char instead of char, since the ISO C (& C++) standards say that the compiler is free to make char range from -128..127 or 0..255. In the original ANSI C standard committee, we joked that char should be pronounced don't char.

My, how you must have laughed.
