Hi Riccardo,

Maxthon is not suggesting to pick a type during compile time, but instead use a 
macro to generate both cases in your code.  For your app it would be something 
like this where the macro has the code, and the C preprocessor is used to 
insert the code.  In reality you still have duplicate code.  I was aware of 
this solution but was interested to see if there was any alternatives.

              DATATYPE    *srcData; \
              DATATYPE    *destData; \
              DATATYPE    *p1; \
              DATATYPE    *p2; \
              // etc.

  if ([srcImageRep bitsPerSample] == 8)
        PROCESS_IMAGE(unsigned char)
  else if ([srcImageRep bitsPerSample] == 16)
        PROCESS_IMAGE(unsigned short)
