NAMECTASSERT - compile time assertion macro
SYNOPSISIn sys/param.h In sys/systm.h Fn CTASSERT expression
DESCRIPTIONThe Fn CTASSERT macro is deprecated and the C11 standard Fn _Static_assert should be used instead. The header Fa sys/cdefs.h should be included to provide compatibility for pre-C11 compilers.
The Fn CTASSERT macro evaluates Fa expression at compile time and causes a compiler error if it is false.
The Fn CTASSERT macro is useful for asserting the size or alignment of important data structures and variables during compilation, which would otherwise cause the code to fail at run time.
EXAMPLESAssert that the size of the Vt uuid structure is 16 bytes.
"CTASSERT(sizeof(struct uuid) == 16);"
