2193. numeric_limits<int>::radix and digits

Section:  [numeric.limits.members]     Status: NAD     Submitter: Tony Van Eerd     Date: 2015-11-02

Is numeric_limits<int>::radix required to be 2? [numeric.limits.members] paragraph 23 specifies:

static constexpr int radix;
For integer types, specifies the base of the representation.

Rationale (November, 2016):

CWG felt that the current specification is sufficiently clear and there was no consensus for a change.
