CMC> Assuming that char is unsigned may be fine if you can
when, of course, I meant to say that assuming that char is either
signed *or* unsigned is a bad idea. Whoops.
P.S. If you want a signed char, you should declare it as `signed
char'; for an unsigned char, declare it as `unsigned char'. Code
with the wrong assumptions for a given platform can still be
compiled on that platform by using the `-fsigned-char' or
`-funsigned-char' options to gcc. Even better, since most of the
broken code assumes that char is signed, simply using
`-fsigned-char' for all platforms will solve the problem by
telling the compiler to always assume that char is signed. That's
still not as good a solution as having the code use sensible types
such as `int8_t', `uint8_t', and so on.
