C99 stdint.h header and MS Visual Studio


Question

To my amazement I just discovered that the C99 stdint.h is missing from MS Visual Studio 2003 upwards. I'm sure they have their reasons, but does anyone know where I can download a copy? Without this header I have no definitions for useful types such as uint32_t, etc.

Turns out you can download a MS version of this header from:

https://github.com/mattn/gntp-send/blob/master/include/msinttypes/stdint.h

A portable one can be found here:

Just define them yourself.

#ifdef _MSC_VER

typedef __int32 int32_t;
typedef unsigned __int32 uint32_t;
typedef __int64 int64_t;
typedef unsigned __int64 uint64_t;

#else
#include <stdint.h>
#endif
