Compiler Error C2033

'identifier' : bit field cannot have indirection

The bit field was declared as a pointer, which is not allowed.

The following sample generates C2033:

// C2033.cpp
struct S {
   int *b : 1;  // C2033

Possible resolution:

// C2033b.cpp
// compile with: /c
struct S {
   int b : 1;
