I have my own types.h that I carry around that has stuff like
typedef unsigned char u8;
typedef unsigned short u16;
typedef unsigned int u32;
typedef unsigned long long u64;
typedef signed char i8;
typedef signed short i16;
typedef signed int i32;
typedef signed long long i64;
and I wonder why the original Unix authors didn't make something similar?
Instead we have uint64_t and I don't see the added value of more chars.
