I'm trying to do some binding code, and I know that C++ bool isn't defined to be a specific size like D's bool. That said, can I assume that the two are the same size on the most platforms?

I shudder to think that D may work with a platform that doesn't consider it to be 1 byte :)

The only platforms I'm really interested in are Windows, Linux, OSX, iOS, FreeBSD, Android. The only thing that might throw me off is if there are some things that Linux or FreeBSD target where this is not the case, but these machines are probably out of the scope of my project.

I would say any platform that D currently supports, C++ bool is defined to be 1 byte.

The ldc/gdc guys would know better.


Thanks, Steve. I was hoping this was the case and it will significantly simplify a lot of my binding code.

I'm curious to see what systems don't have a bool size of 1 byte, but perhaps I'll put a check in my CMake file and prevent the project from building if it isn't.
