Seems like a strange request.  Why don't you want to use sizeof()?

Anyway, here it goes:

int sizeInBits;
for (sizeInBits = 1; (1u << sizeInBits) > 1; ++sizeInBits)
    cout << (1u << sizeInBits) << endl;
cout << "An int is " << sizeInBits << " bits" << endl;

This works under VC++.  I believe that the definition of << is standard enough for this to work on any compiler.

Sorry.  Should have written that as:

int sizeInBits;
for (sizeInBits = 1; (1u << sizeInBits) > 1; ++sizeInBits)
    ;
cout << "An int is " << sizeInBits << " bits" << endl;

u = unsigned
l = long

You can tag a constant with either or both of these qualifiers.  In effect, we measured the size of an unsigned int, not an int.
