View Full Version : GCC bool undefined

Stack Overflow

I'm using Redhat 9.0 with Kernel 2.4.20-31.9. Including GLIB 2.4, GLIBC 2.2 and GCC 3.2.2 20040222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5).

Whenever I compile a file with gcc, the identifier bool seems to be undeclared. I have temporarily fixed this by adding typedef enum {FALSE, TRUE} bool; to my main source file, but I would like to know if there is a patch for GCC that might fix this in the future. Or if one or more of my previous versions of GCC, GLIB, are GLIBC or out-dated and may have something to do with this problem, please let me know.

Thank you for your time,

bool is a c++ type; use g++ or stick with your enum typedef if you want to use it with gcc.

Thanks for the tip. I'll keep this in mind.

you might think it is because vi automatically highlights it even in .c code.
