Subject [jira] [Resolved] (AXIS2C-740) Definition of type axis2_bool_t based on an enumeration
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2011 13:15:38 GMT


Samisa Abeysinghe resolved AXIS2C-740.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

This patch is too old to be applied

> Boolean types have only two states.
> As C does not have such a type, an alternate mechanism has been used as, typedef int
> Now, legally axis2_bool_t types can have any integer value.
> I propose that it should only be limited to two values.
> Thus it should be defined as typedef enum {AXIS2_FALSE, AXIS2_TRUE} axis2_bool_t;
> in C, types defined in such a manner do accept any integer value. But, when compiled
using a C++ compiler, it would flag an error which should be the desired behavior.
> Ex:- in C++, axis2_bool_t myVar = 100; would result in, error: invalid conversion from
'int' to 'axis2_bool_t'
