Can someone please tell me what advantage 'define true true' is going to
bring, besides than being able to '#ifdef true'?

Assembly-code can not use enum but #define. That is the reason I find but there
might be more.

That won't work -- the #define just makes the enum available, which doesn't work at the assembler level.

But assembly code doesn't use this stuff, so no worries.
