Maximum and Minimum values for ints


I am looking for minimum and maximum values for integers in python. For eg., in Java, we have Integer.MIN_VALUE and Integer.MAX_VALUE. Is there something like this in python?



In Python 3, an integer is unbounded. It doesn't have a maximum or minimum size. It is only limited by the system’s maximum size. However, you can find the system maximum word size in python 3 by using sys.maxsize. The maximum value representable by an unsigned word is sys.maxsize * 2 + 1.

In Python 2, you can get the maximum limit of an integer with sys.maxint.
