Subject [jira] Commented: (AVRO-47) Byte sequence to be represented as void*
Date Mon, 04 Jan 2010 17:11:55 GMT

Scott Banachowski commented on AVRO-47:
---------------------------------------

Thanks Chris for furthering the discussion.  Looks like there's more votes for void* now than
against.

> The current function prototype for serializin bytes is as follows:
> void putBytes(const uint8_t *val, size_t size)
> This is better written as
> void putBytes(const void *val, size_t size)
> Using void* in favour of an int based data type frees us from unnecessary casting opaque
bytes from arbitrary stuctures/classes into "integer". This is consistent with say a function
like memcpy()
