Should I use C types (uint8_t/.../uint64_t) or (u_int8_t/.../u_int64_t)?
My GNU-Linux platform (debian stretch) has the C types
defined in the file
are defined in
. I have found these types useful in the course of practicing X86-64 assembly language and interacting with C. Is there any reason why I should prefer one header file over the other (be it 'best practice', portability etc.)?. Is the answer any different for C++?
