Unspecified Compiler Error If Const Or Volatile Used In Typedef

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


BoostC ver7.01



The following code which worked with HITECH produces an "error: failure" message.

Change const to volatile and you get the same error.

Remove the const altogether and it compiles ok.



#include <system.h>


typedef const char * pcc;


pcc ChrPtr;


void main(void)


char c;


c = *ChrPtr;
