Re: typeof and bitfields

So given that "n" has a type, what's the rationale for saying that users aren't allowed to look at that type using typeof? The C++ compiler knows that the type of that field is "int", and I can't think of any reason why the C compiler shouldn't know that too.

The type is one bit size int which is different from int. The patch which changed this is <http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2004-03/msg01300.html>.

This patch describes the exact type and why this changed and where in the
C standard this is mentioned.
