/* ISO C 99 <stdbool.h> for platforms that lack it. */
/* Usage suggestions:
Programs that use <stdbool.h> should be aware of some limitations
and standards compliance issues.
Standards compliance:
- <stdbool.h> must be #included before 'bool', 'false', 'true'
can be used.
- You cannot assume that sizeof (bool) == 1.
- Programs should not undefine the macros bool, true, and false,
as C99 lists that as an "obsolescent feature".
Limitations of this substitute, when used in a C89 environment:
- <stdbool.h> must be #included before the '_Bool' type can be used.
- You cannot assume that _Bool is a typedef; it might be a macro.
- In C99, casts and automatic conversions to '_Bool' or 'bool' are
performed in such a way that every nonzero value gets converted
to 'true', and zero gets converted to 'false'. This doesn't work
with this substitute. With this substitute, only the values 0 and 1
give the expected result when converted to _Bool' or 'bool'.
Also, it is suggested that programs use 'bool' rather than '_Bool';
this isn't required, but 'bool' is more common. */

/* For the sake of symbolic names in gdb, we define true and false as
enum constants, not only as macros.
It is tempting to write
typedef enum { false = 0, true = 1 } _Bool;
so that gdb prints values of type 'bool' symbolically. But if we do
this, values of type '_Bool' may promote to 'int' or 'unsigned int'
(see ISO C 99; however, '_Bool' must promote to 'int'
(see ISO C 99 So we add a negative value to the
enum; this ensures that '_Bool' promotes to 'int'. */
