Invalid combination of type specifiers and Bool
In the newer versions of the compiler, an error may be emitted regarding the definition of the following:
- The _Bool type
- The bool typedef or macro
- The true and false macros
- The __bool_true_false_are_defined macro
To fix this issue, remove the macro definitions and typedefs listed above and replace the code with:
Prior to support for the standard header <stdbool.h>, users often manually defined the above identifiers. When not guarded properly, this added code will cause errors at compile-time in the default (relaxed) language mode. The error will take a form such as:
"bool_fail.c", line 1: error: invalid combination of type specifiers
This is because _Bool is defined internally, and the compiler is reading a single type called 'unsigned int _Bool' rather than a typedef of '_Bool' to the type 'unsigned int'
