CORBA23 — Size of IDL char

  • Key: CORBA23-206
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1753

  • Summary:

    Summary: The IDL chapter says on page 3-24:

    OMG IDL defines a char data type that is an 8-bit quantity which...

    This seems to imply that chars must map to an 8-bit type in the target
    language. Not all CPUs can do this. For example, on a Cray, chars are a
    32-bit type.

    I would suggest to remove the size requirement.
