### Converting 32-bit integer value to unsigned 16-bit integer

What does the C standard say about:
uint32_t a = 0x11223344;
uint16_t b = a;
When printed, I am getting 0x3344, which makes sense; so this must be legal and correct behaviour?

### How to implement uint32 addition and subtraction operations in Ruby?

Please do not suggest using any gems or creating classes for unsigned integers.
Input data - strings that represent 4 byte sequence.
Output data should be the same type of string.
This is what I've got so far:
def addition(augend, addend)
sum = augend.to_i(16)+addend.to_i(16)

### Signed integer and unsigned integer [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:
Why Do We have unsigned and signed int type in C?
4 answers
I am studying c language and there are two different integer types, signed/unsigned.
Signed integers can present both positive and negative numbers. Why do we
need unsigned integers then?

No arithmetic is done by C at a precision shorter than int, so these conversions are implied almost whenever you use one of the objec...
