first it is approx 21M or 2^31.  And second on just about every UNIX or unix 
like platfor that I have seen int is defined as the same size as long.  To
see the size of your variables check out the limits.h file.  This is a 
system file that contains alot of the maximums and length definiations of
types.  And lastly if that doesnt work run your debugger and send a block
of code around the bad area and the error message.
