I'm not sure if my wording is exactly correct, so correct me if it's wrong....
It seems casting is necessary when initializing anything below a selected type on the list:
double d = 9;
float f = (float)d; //Cast necessary
Why is casting necessary between float and long even though float is 32 bits and long is 64 bits? Long is bigger, there should be plenty of room.
I believe that short can hold an negative value, and char can't. So, a char can hold more than a short? and a cast is necessary. Why is a cast necessary both ways if one is bigger than the other?
Why is casting necessary both ways if char is 16 bits, and byte is 8 bits?
