The C++ byte




I’m interested in this data type: the question is, what seems to be found in the source code (strangers), but my compiler swears at

byte a;
  BYTE a;

You have been written quite correctly that there is no such type in C++. And nevertheless, you could have come across it in someone else’s code. For example, from MSDN :

A byte (8 bits).
This type is declared in WinDef.h as follows:
typedef unsigned char BYTE;

C++ 17 introduces std :: byte https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/types/byte .
