Cross Platform Question
Message ID:
I am about to embark on writing my first XS module and I need to know
the answer to a simple question:

    Is there any platform where the native unsigned short integer 
    is not (much) smaller than the native unsigned long?

I can see that some machines might not have a short integer as opposed
to a regular int, but are there any that have just one size integer?
