Hi,
When I am generating code using embedded code (ver:6.3), the data types appear as follows.
unit8 -> uint8_T
boolean ->boolean_T
I want to replace the 'boolean_T' type with 'bool' by defining a Simulink.AliasType object in the base workspace and updating this to the configuration set. But I get the following error.
Error using rtwbuild (line 241) Potential conflicting usages of identifier 'bool': a data type of that name, and Language Keywords
Is it not possible to use 'bool' as a user defined data type name?
Thanks Rahul

'bool' is a reserved keyword for code generation. For more information, see Reserved Keywords.

Hi,
For boolean, the replacement data type's BaseType must be either an 8-bit integer or an integer of the size displayed for Number of bits: int on the Hardware Implementation pane of the Configuration Parameters dialog box.
