    Post negative integer?

    Code:
    #define MY_SYMBOLIC_CONSTANT 4
    
    mystructure.member = (Int16)-(MY_SYMBOLIC_CONSTANT-1)
    Is 'mystructure.member' simply the negative integer minus three i.e. -3


    Note: 'Int16' is a typedef of 'signed int'

    Why don't you test it yourself?
    Code:
    printf("%d\n", -(4-1) );
    See how hard that was? Or wait, here's an even harder method!
    Code:
    printf("%d\n", mystructure.member );

    It's part of a huge project, just wanted to be really sure. Anyway, I can confirm the above code is -3

    If you can't figure this one line out yourself, the huge project will be beyond you.
