Dan, I'm trying to remove this chunk of code:


typedef int BOOL;

Are we talinkg about the same BOOL type?

This typedef is about a int type.

I made just compile test, and my doubt if this BOOL typedef is same as you 
are talinkg about.

If this BOOL don't "break" any architeture, I will be happy to remove all 
of it from vt6656 and vt6655, both with the same horrible ttype.h file.

Thanks for the comments.
