Hi,

  Please allow me to correct the following thing :

recGblResetAlarms return unsigned short (epicsUint16) instead of unsigned int (epicsUint32)

  Thanks,
  Han

Hi,

I am wondering the mixed data types in monitor function in most_of_Record.c. For example, static void monitor(aiRecord *prec).

recGblResetAlarms function returns epicsUint16 (unsigned int) and the returned value is used in different way according to its record, and pass it as argument of db_post_events function with mixed data type.

All of them mixed data types are larger than its epicsUnit16, so no problems I saw.

Is it just due to "history of Data types evolution" in many difference records? If so, do we have any intention to keep the same data type in entire (at least monitor function) EPICS layer? If any help is needed, I can work on them.


   Thanks,
   Han
