We have to request of a 64-bit integer data type to be included in MIDAS banks.
Since 64-bit integers are on some systems "long" and on other systems "long long",
I decided to create the two new data types
which follows more the standard C++ tradition:
To be consistent, I renamed the old types:
TID_BYTE -> TID_UINT8
TID_SBYTE -> TID_INT8
TID_WORD -> TID_UINT16
TID_SHORT -> TID_INT16
TID_DWORD -> TID_UINT32
TID_INT -> TID_INT32
I left the old definitions in midas.h, so old code will still compile fine and be binary
compatible. But if you write new code, the new types are recommended.
If you save the ODB in ASCII format, the new types are used as stings as well, like
ODB timeout = INT32 : 10000
but the old types are still understood when you load an old ODB file.
I hope I didn't break anything, please report if you have any issue.
