Description Hans Jorgensen 2013-01-11 16:14:01 UTC
It appears that C shares a code coloring database with C++, including datatypes that do not exist in C. For instance, I noticed that "bool", "true", and "false" were all colored blue, which misled me into thinking that there was actually a "bool" type in C until I attempted to compile and found that there wasn't one. It was an easy workaround (a typedef to make bool an unsigned char and constants to get "true" and "false"), but the coloring issue be fixed?
