**Discussion:**

Formatted input is defined for the types `short`, `unsigned short`, `int`,
`unsigned int`, `long`, `unsigned long`, `float`, `double`,
`long double`, `bool`, and `void*`. According to section 27.6.1.2.2,
formatted input of a value `x` is done as if by the following code fragment:

typedef num_get< charT,istreambuf_iterator<charT,traits> > numget; iostate err = 0; use_facet< numget >(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, val); setstate(err);

According to section 25.4.2.1.1 [facet.num.get.members], however,
`num_get<>::get()` is only overloaded for the types
`bool`, `long`, `unsigned short`, `unsigned
int`, `unsigned long`, `unsigned long`,
`float`, `double`, `long double`, and
`void*`. Comparing the lists from the two sections, we find
that 27.6.1.2.2 is using a nonexistent function for types
`short` and `int`.

**Proposed resolution:**

In 30.7.4.2.2 [istream.formatted.arithmetic] Arithmetic Extractors, remove the two lines (1st and 3rd) which read:

operator>>(short& val); ... operator>>(int& val);

And add the following at the end of that section (27.6.1.2.2) :

operator>>(short& val);The conversion occurs as if performed by the following code fragment (using the same notation as for the preceding code fragment):

typedef num_get< charT,istreambuf_iterator<charT,traits> > numget; iostate err = 0; long lval; use_facet< numget >(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, lval); if (err == 0 && (lval < numeric_limits<short>::min() || numeric_limits<short>::max() < lval)) err = ios_base::failbit; setstate(err);operator>>(int& val);The conversion occurs as if performed by the following code fragment (using the same notation as for the preceding code fragment):

typedef num_get< charT,istreambuf_iterator<charT,traits> > numget; iostate err = 0; long lval; use_facet< numget >(loc).get(*this, 0, *this, err, lval); if (err == 0 && (lval < numeric_limits<int>::min() || numeric_limits<int>::max() < lval)) err = ios_base::failbit; setstate(err);
