I've recently had problems with compiling my code that used the numeric limits defined in
stdint.h, UINT64_MAX in particular. The error I was getting was
error: ‘UINT64_MAX’ was not declared in this scope
What I didn't know is that simply including
stdint.hwasn't enough. The macro __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS has to be defined before the point where
stdint.his included, otherwise the limits are not defined. The best way of defining this macro, IMHO, is by compiling with -D__STDC_LIMIT_MACROS, instead of manually defining the macro somewhere in code. Hope this post will save someone a few minutes (hours?) if they run into similar problems.
