    Can you do type casting in C??
    Yes. That's where it came from. This is more accurately called 'type coercion'. Because you are coercing a type to some other type (to fool the compiler).

    Casting/Coercion is all about how you want the compiler to view the data-- it has nothing to do with the data itself.
    It is not the spoon that bends, it is you who bends around the spoon.

    are you sure it's just in the way that the compiler views it? I think it must change the way the data is represented, somewhere, temporarily, because I've read in documents on optimizing 3D math that type casting is slow...
