* All arithmetic is performed modulo 2^n, where @n@ is the number of
bits in the type.
* For coercing between any two integer types, use 'Prelude.fromIntegral',
which is specialized for all the common cases so should be fast
enough. Coercing word types (see "Data.Word") to and from integer
types preserves representation, not sign.
* The rules that hold for 'Prelude.Enum' instances over a
bounded type such as 'Int' (see the section of the
Haskell report dealing with arithmetic sequences) also hold for the
'Prelude.Enum' instances over the various
'Int' types defined here.
* Right and left shifts by amounts greater than or equal to the width
of the type result in either zero or -1, depending on the sign of
the value being shifted. This is contrary to the behaviour in C,
which is undefined; a common interpretation is to truncate the shift
count to the width of the type, for example @1 \<\< 32
== 1@ in some C implementations.
