unsigned specifier Unsigned integer type specifier

simple-type-specifier := unsigned

The unsigned type specifier can be used with any integral type to make the type unsigned. Unsigned integer arithmetic is always performed modulo 2n, in which n is the number of bits in the value representation of the integer. When used alone, unsigned means unsigned int.
