[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

such a cast typically does not produce code in assembler...

it is just an instruction for the compiler, to use the correct
comparison operator (in this case "unsigned <= unsigned").

If you would not do such casting, in "best case" you would get C
compiler warnings or errors - in worst case severe
"misunderstandings"... .
