Discussion
The number of bits determines directly the range for the respective values:
Number of bits 
Min. value 
Max. value 

8 bit 
–128 
127 
16 bit 
–32768 
32767 
32 bit 
–2147483648 
2147483647 
64 bit 
–2^63 
2^63  1 
The signed integer numbers must always be expressed as a sequence of digits with an optional + or  sign put in front of the number. The literals can be used within expressions wherever an int8, int16, int32 or int64 operand is expected. The type names, in turn, are designated to be used in declarations of data members. For example:
var int32 voltage = 220000; var int16 current = 100;
64bit restrictions on WebGL (JavaScript) target
The 64bit support depends on the features available in the particular target system. This is especially problematic when developing a GUI application for the WebGL target system. In this case the underlying JavaScript language does not support the storage of real 64bit integer values nor it is able to perform real64 bit arithmetic operations. In fact, JavaScript manages numbers as 64bit floating point entities with maximally 53bit intended to store the number (mantissa). As soon as an integer value exceeds 53bit the precision will decline. This should be taken in account when you perform arithmetic operations with the supposed 64bit numbers.
Even more restrictive is the case if you intend to perform bitwise operations on 64bit operands. JavaScript reduces in such cases the operands to 32bit causing the results of the operation to be not predictable. Therefore, when targeting WebGL you should be careful and avoid the usage of more than 53bit in int64 operands for arithmetic operations and even 32bit for bitwise operations.
When generating code for WebGL target Embedded Wizard verifies int64 operands and reports warnings if an operation is suspect and not guaranteed to produce correct results. For example, the increment operator ++ may fail if the operand it is applied on would contain a large number. Embedded Wizard reports in such case a warning like shown below:

Type conversions
Chora reacts sensitive when mixing operands of different data types within an operation. To avoid compiler warnings or even errors you can convert the affected operands explicitly by using following conversion operations:
Conversion operations with signed integers 

Conversion between signed and unsigned integers. 
Conversion to or from a floatingpoint value. 
Conversion to or from an enumeration value. 
Conversion to or from a set value. 
Conversion to or from a char value. 
Formatting a string from a signed integer number. 
Parsing a string as a signed integer number.
