Reason behind MISRA rule 111

Started by vikasvds May 16, 2011
Hi,

I am just curious to know what the reason behind MISRA rule 111.

The rule says - Bit fields shall only be defined to be one of type unsigned
int or signed int

I have used UINT32 instead of unsigned int in my code but compiler has
thrown a warning says - "field type should be int"

Could somebody please put light on this.

Thanks
Vikas
