timer definition in both timer.h and uIP_Task

Hi, I wonder if any one can answer my question regarding a timer definition in both files, timer.h and uIP_Task.c, which a timer struct is defined in Common/ethnet/uIP/timer.h and also defined in demo/webserver/uIP_Task.c.

struct timer {
  clock_time_t start;
  clock_time_t interval;

Why did they not get to conflict when I built a demo code?

I don’t understand what you are asking. Is it that two files define the same type, but define it differently?

Hi Davedoors,

Sorry, I mean a same type timer struct has defined on both places, one is defined in timer.h and another is defined in uIPTask.c.

Why does uIPTask.c redefine the timer struct since it already included the timer.h?
