Default long vs short exhaust header

Hear me out here!

I want to know what difference a short vs long exhaust header does.
If I have a car setup with engine (any) and a pipe (any) and then change between a long exhaust and a short exhaust.
In what way will the power band change.
Does a long exhaust mean more bottom end power or is it the other way around.
Remember that everything else in this experiment is the same items.

EDIT: To clarify we are talking exhaust/header/manifold here. Not the actual pipe! Somebody got it all wrong it my previous thread and started world war III over it.
Life's like a lemon and I want my money back!

A long header will tune more for bottom end, a short header will tune more for top end.
