I suppose that's what the #ifdef dance is for, to avoid them at all costs. Especially if including other header files may cause them to be typedef'ed. Whether it can be done in a better way is another matter of course. But a #define can be #ifdef'ed, where a typedef can't. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- The Doctor: No, 'eureka' is Greek for \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- 'this bath is too hot.'
