- The `#include <limits>` fix makes sense
- For `my_bool` I suggest to use what TangoDatabase uses in https://gitlab.com/tango-controls/TangoDatabase/-/blob/main/common.h#L12.

Regarding Tango::string_free, this is part of cppTango since 9.3.3. Are you required to use an old version like that? Latest 9.3.x is 9.3.6, and on the modern branch we have 9.4.2.

Sure I can try it with version 9.4.2, but now I have another problem. Following the instructions:
https://tango-controls.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation/tango-on-linux.html#debian-ubuntu
Everything worked fine.

However, following the installation procedure in version 9.4.2, I do not understand why I do not see a tango folder after the installation process?

As I understand now I can not use ./configure command on 9.4.2 tango version. I downloaded the latest version from:
https://gitlab.com/tango-controls/TangoSourceDistribution/-/releases

And I got stuck on such a warning from CMake. By calling the command:

cmake CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX='/usr/local' TSD_JAVA_PATH='/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/bin' MYSQL_HOST='localhost' MYSQL_ADMIN='carolinii' MYSQL_ADMIN_PASSWD='tango' TDB_DATABASE_SCHEMA='ON' ..
