 +====== Type SIGNED-BYTE ======
 +
 +====Supertypes====
 +**signed-byte**,​ **[[CL:​Types:​integer]]**,​ **[[CL:​Types:​rational]]**,​ **[[CL:​Types:​real]]**,​ **[[CL:​Types:​number]]**,​ **[[CL:​Types:​t]]**
 +
 +====Description====
 +The atomic //​[[CL:​Glossary:​type specifier]]//​ **[[CL:​Types:​signed-byte]]** denotes the same type as is denoted by the //​[[CL:​Glossary:​type specifier]]//​ **[[CL:​Types:​integer]]**;​ however, the list forms of these two //​[[CL:​Glossary:​type specifiers]]//​ have different semantics.
 +
 +====Compound Type Specifier Kind====
 +Abbreviating.
 +
 +====Compound Type Specifier Syntax====
 +  * **:​signed-byte** [//s// | **[[CL:​Types:​wildcard|*]]**]
 +
 +====Compound Type Specifier Arguments====
 +  * //s// - a positive //​[[CL:​Glossary:​integer]]//​.
 +
 +====Compound Type Specifier Description====
 +This denotes the set of //​[[CL:​Glossary:​integers]]//​ that can be represented in two'​s-complement form in a //​[[CL:​Glossary:​byte]]//​ of //s// bits. This is equivalent to ''​(integer //lower// //​upper//​)'',​ where //lower// and //upper//, respectively,​ are ''​-2<​sup>​s - 1</​sup>''​ and  ''​2<​sup>​s - 1</​sup>​ - 1''​. The type **signed-byte** or the type ''​(signed-byte *)''​ is the same as the type **[[CL:​Types:​integer]]**.
