Common C type definitions
The ctypes unit contains the definitions of commonly found C types. It can be used when interfaces to C libraries need to be defined. The types here are correct on all platforms, 32 or 64 bit.
The main advantage of using this file is to make sure that all C header import units use the same definitions for basic C types.
The h2pas program can include the ctypes unit automatically in the units it generates. The -C command-line switch can be used for this.
