A 32-bit integer is a data type in computing that can store an integer value in 32 bits (4 bytes) of memory.

32-bit stored integers theoretically allow counting between $ 0 $ and $ 2^{32}-1 = 4294967295 $ for an unsigned integer.

It is possible to use a bit to indicate the sign (`+` or `-`) of the number in order to sign it, and have a value between $ -2^{31} = 2147483648 $ and $ 2^{31}-1 = 2147483647 $. This representation is called *two's complement*.

Any message can be computer coded in binary (thus on bits). By interpreting each 32-bit block as numbers, a message can be encoded as a series of numbers.

__Example:__ `dCode` can be coded `01100100,01000011,01101111,01100100,01100101` in binary (ASCII coding). The first 32 bits translate the number `1685013348`, then the sequence is `101`.

If the message does not have a length multiple of 32 bits, padded with null bytes

Integers must be converted to binary and then interpreted with the appropriate encoding (usually ASCII or Unicode) to obtain intelligible text.

__Example:__ The number `1685013348` is converted to `1100100010000110110111101100100` in base 2. By completing it to 32 bits (from the left), it is equivalent to `64,43,6F,64` in hexadecimal, i.e. the letters 'd,C ,o,d' with the ASCII code.

Integers are numbers between -2147483648 and 2147483647, or even 4294967295. Generally, if they encode ASCII characters, then numbers have 10 digits and start with `1`, sometimes they have 9 but rarely less.

32-bit integers are widely used in computing because they can store a wide range of integer values with sufficient precision for many common applications. Moreover, their size is relatively small, which makes them efficient in terms of memory usage.

No, a 32-bit integer cannot store numbers larger than 2^31-1. If a value greater than this limit is stored in a 32-bit integer, the result will be an overflow error and the value will be truncated.
