D3. Longints in a record
Posted on 1998-05-27
More in the saga of converting D1 to D3.
Under D1 a variable of type longint gave 32 bit fields in a record. Under D3 it does not. The original file of records created under D1 cannot be read under D3 when the type is longint or integer. If I cheat and declare the type as array[1..4] of char the actual data in the file cannot be read of course but it is in sync where with the longint it slips out of sync, so I'm convinced that the longint is not allocating 4 bytes in the record.
How do I declare an integer type that is 32 bits long?
