The memcpy() is NOT a hack and performs exactly the same operation
as casting the pointer and then dereferencing, only in a manner that
avoids unaligned accesses.

On platforms like x86 the memcpy() is optimized to a simple assignment.

Casting the pointer and then dereferencing would also be subject
to the UB warnings.


You are the one who wanted to *introduce* a hack by dereferencing
as char and then cast to _Bool. :-)
