Just don't make baseless assumptions about sizes of data types. Don't assume that a pointer is the same size as an int for example, or that the number 5000000000 will fit in a long int. Use uint32_t if you need a 32-bit number and so on. It's just that simple. Even better, avoid C and use a better designed language with a good type system. Björn Persson
