Here is the relevant paragraph from the article mentioned earlier:

If you are wondering why all the integer values are unsigned long, the
answer is simple. GScanner does not look at the number sign when scanning
numbers. So if the input contains
-32 you will get two tokens: one for the minus sign, and one for the integer

Hope that helps,
