Short Enum Type (16Bits)

Hi, 

In Altera NiosII Eclipse compiler, the enum type is defualt to 4 bytes in size. Is there any# pragma or compiler control that force the enum type size to 2 bytes? 

If not, is there any way to define an enum type as 2 bytes data type in altera? 

Thank you,

Hi, 

 

I've never used it but GCC has the -fshort-enums option, which tells the compiler to make shorts out of your enums. 

 

Maybe it's worth to try it....
