    hi,
    Because RW is a macro define, its value can't be changed. In your program, define write() with RW |= 1, and when this program is compiled, write() will be replaced with 0 |= 1, it is impossible.
    if you want to change the value of RW, you can use this:
    #include

    static unsigned int RW = 0;

    __inline write()
    {
    RW |= 1;
    }

    int main()
    {
    printf("Before
    %d", RW);
    write();
    printf("After calling WRITE
    %d", RW);
    getchar();

    return 0;
    }
