#25994 I had a case where I need to call min() function, I've simply got the following error : :?
So, I used the suggested alternative std::min() ...

Code: Select allSketch_Buffet.ino:810:57: error: 'min' was not declared in this scope
Sketch_Buffet.ino:810:57: note: suggested alternative:

#26009 You need to include <algorithm> to use std::min, see
Of course you can also define a simple macro:
Code: Select all#define min(X, Y) (((X)<(Y))?(X):(Y))

Be careful though, if you pass something like x++ to the macro, the statement might be evaluated more than once and x ends up being incremented twice.

#26026 I mean, normally on Arduino, such as Uno or Nano, we don't need to include any thing and min()/max() are already defined.
Here, on ESP, I had to specify the "std::" namespace (I didn't have to add a include), and it worked !
So, it is a small glitch, but if someone is porting a existing library, he will probably faced that ...

EDIT: I didn't have to add the include simply because it was already included indirectly.
