NAME

hal_type_t - typedefs for HAL datatypes

DESRCIPTION

typedef ... hal_bool;

A type which may have a value of 0 or nonzero.

typedef ... hal_bit_t;

A volatile type which may have a value of 0 or nonzero.

typedef ... hal_s32_t;

A volatile type which may have a value from -2147483648 to 2147483647.

typedef ... hal_u32_t;

A volatile type which may have a value from 0 to 4294967295.

typedef ... hal_port_t;

A volatile handle to a port object. Used with hal_port* functions.

typedef ... hal_float_t;

A volatile floating-point type, which typically has the same precision and range as the C type double.

typedef ... real_t;

A nonvolatile floating-point type with at least as much precision as hal_float_t.

typedef ... ireal_t;

A nonvolatile unsigned integral type the same size as hal_float_t.

typedef enum hal_type_t;

HAL_BIT

Corresponds to the type hal_bit_t.

HAL_FLOAT

Corresponds to the type hal_float_t.

HAL_S32

Corresponds to the type hal_s32_t.

HAL_U32

Corresponds to the type hal_u32_t.

NOTES

hal_bit_t is typically a typedef to an integer type whose range is larger than just 0 and 1. When testing the value of a hal_bit_t, never compare it to 1. Prefer one of the following:

if(b)

if(b != 0)

It is often useful to refer to a type that can represent all the values as a hal type, but without the volatile qualifier. The following types correspond with the hal types:

hal_bit_t

int

hal_s32_t

__s32

hal_u32_t

__u32

hal_float_t

hal_real_t

hal_port_t

int

Take care not to use the types s32 and u32. These will compile in kernel modules but not in userspace, and not for "realtime components" when using simulated (userspace) realtime.
