For non-negative integers,
(integer-length i) is the minimum number
of bits needed to represent the integer. Any integer can be
represented as a signed two's complement field with a minimum of
(+ (integer-length i) 1) bits.
The guard for
integer-length requires its argument to be an
Integer-length is defined in Common Lisp. See any
Common Lisp documentation for more information.
