SD Card Header Problem

I'm using an SD Card core in my SOPC builder system. In my Nios II IDE program I've included the associated header file. When I build the project I get the following error: 

 

/cygdrive/c/altera/90/ip/altera_up_sd_card_avalon_interface/HAL/inc/altera_up_sd_card_avalon_interface.h:27: error: expected identifier before "false" 

 

In altera_up_sd_card_avalon_interface.h, line 27 there is the following code: 

typedef enum e_bool { false = 0, true = 1 } bool; 

 

what is the problem ? I guess there should be no problem with the header files included with the IP cores and we do not need to edit them!!!!!!!!!!! 

tnx in advance

Hi moeen, 

Probably your projects includes somewhere stdbool.h header, which already has bool type and true/false defined 

 

If you can't fix it, you can try adding the following undefs just before including the header with the typedef 

# undef false 

# undef true 

# undef bool

Mmmm, 

I tried to include the same typedef in one of my projects: I get the error but the undef trick works and it fixes it. 

Maybe you have different compiler settings. C++ support, Small C library, or any other similar options.

I have chosen the small C library, could it be the problem? but unchecking it would need a very large amount of memory! :(

Do you use c or c++? 

In C++ false and true are parts of the language. In pure C thats not the case. 

if you use c++ try to place the offending header in something like this. 

 

extern "C" 

 

#include "altera_up_sd_card_avalon_interface.h"

I believe the post creator has already resolved his issues, but, I had the same error and resolved it like this: 

 

In altera_up_sd_card_avalon_interface.h, removed the line: 

typedef enum e_bool { false = 0, true = 1 } bool; 

 

Then, included stdbool.h. Problem solved! :)
