Measuring handlebar size

When measuring the width of your handlebars do you measure from the inside-inside or outside-outside?

And some don't measure at the bar end, and the bars are flared, so the bar ends are wider than the bar width...

Various makers specify it differently with some as c-c and others as o-o. Some of the mail-order catalogs even state which bars are specified which way. BTW, as a good rule of thumb a c-c bar will be 2 cm wider than the same dimension o-o. For example, a 42 cm c-c bar will measure about the same as a 44 cm bar stated o-o.
