Compilation Error/Warning - Help

Hello everybody,

I am not yet fully comfortable with understanding c++ warnings/error
messages. Very recently I have updated my IDE to VC++7.0 (MS.Net
7.0-Enterprise architect) from vc++6. Initially the same code used to
compile without any messages. Now the following warning/error messages
are appearing.

I don't think this it is related some source code of mine. Otherwise I
would have pasted the my code here.

Feel like it some kind of configuration tweak is necessary to my
Makefile. The same messages are appearing for all my *.cpp files.
Can you give me a hint on why these are appearing? and how to resolve
it.

regards,
Raja Koduru

If you look in the vicinity of line 610 in the header <xlocale> you'll
see this:

void _Init(const _Locinfo& _Lobj)
{ // initialize from _Lobj
}

So the compiler is, in fact, correct that _Lobj is not used. If that
bothers you, edit the header and remove _Lobj. Or just turn off this
warning.

Pete Becker,

You are correct. Thank you. I now understand why it is reporting so. I
very much want to disable such errors from standard headers. But I
don't want to edit those standard headers. I would prefer to stitch
configurations at my end.

Please suggest me on how to disable only this particular warning, very
specific to this file(s). I don't want to disable the whole of C4100.
Because if I am making any such mistakes in my code this(C4100) warning
will give me a chance to correct it.

Correct me if my request sounds absurd.

regards,
raja koduru

It's not absurd, just, in my view, a bit misguided. You've hit on one of
my pet peeves, so don't take any of this paragraph personally. <g>
There's nothing wrong with a function not using some of its arguments.
It's sometimes necessary, in order to provide a rich interface that
doesn't happen to be needed in a particular class, but is needed in, for
example, derived classes. Busybody compilers can usually be quieted by
leaving out the argument name, but that's not legal in C, so it's not a
general solution. Unfortunately, there's a growing trend to let
compilers dictate style rules in the form of warnings for whatever
valid, unambiguous constructs the compiler writer thinks might be misused.

As to suppressing it for that header, you're asking a compiler-specific
question, which is technically out of bounds in this newsgroup. But
generally speaking you can disable some warnings before including a
header and re-enable them afterwards, and sometimes that disabled status
will stick to the things that were defined in the header.

Thank you Pete Becker. That gives me direction to pursue further.

Microsoft's headers are full of warnings, and most of them seem to be
not possible to disable without disabling warnings altogether.

Exactly. Does that version of the compiler have a #pragma which can be
used to turn off warnings only around the headers in your code?
Correct me if my request sounds absurd.


It's not absurd. Microsoft (or anyone else) releasing standard headers
which produce warnings is absurd...

Thanks chris. I using pragma warning disable feature on file by file
basis.

My question, stated as simply as possible, is: must a constraint violation, as defined by the standard, cause compilation to halt? I believe that in the presence of a constraint violation, at least one diagnostic is required, which, at the discretion of the compiler writer, may be either an "error" or a "warning." Generally however, an error halts compilation and a warning does not. This would seem to imply that it is up to the compiler...
