C Question

'uint32_t' identifier not found error

I'm porting code from Linux C to Visual C++ for windows.

Visual C++ doesn't know

#include <stdint.h>
so I commented it out.

Later, I found a lot of those
'uint32_t': identifier not found
errors. How can it be solved?


This type is defined in the C header <stdint.h> which is not currently a part of the C++ standard. According to the Wikipedia page on the header, it hasn't shipped with Visual Studio until VS2010.

In the meantime, you could probably fake up your own version of the header by adding typedefs that map Microsoft's custom integer types to the types expected by C. For example:

typedef __int32 int32_t;
typedef unsigned __int32 uint32_t;
/* ... etc. ... */

Hope this helps!
