Really?

I have done so in C quite happily for 32-bit code in DOS, Windows (compilers 6.0 and 2018), Linux (32 and 64-bit), and in the past Solaris. And it all works.

Try this:

#include <stdint.h>

#include <stdio.h>

int main()

{

uint32_t uu;

int32_t ii = -1;

uu = (unsigned)ii;

if(ii == uu) printf("test 1 OK\n");

if(uu == (unsigned)-1) printf("test 2 OK\n");

return 0;

}

$ gcc -Wall itest.c -o itest

./itest

test 1 OK

test 2 OK
