Uint_t is technically incorrect. The data returned from the socket connection is a
32-bit pointer to an object in the remote process (how do they come up with
communication protocols like this?!?). The type "Uint_t" is not defined to be of any
particular size and is not necessarily big enough to hold a 32-bit unsigned integer.
According to the "C99" standard, the correct C data type for 32-bit unsigned
integers is uint32_t, defined in "#include <stdint.h>", e.g. see
I have now added the missing "#include <stdint.h>" statement to
DataSourceTNetFolder.h, commited as revision 230.
I am puzzled why the code compiled without this include statement, possibly on my
SL4.3 machine with ROOT v5.16.00, some ROOT or system header file included it for
me. I am curious what system you use where this code failed to compile?
