I'm compiling a module which issues a #warning statement. It's a warning that I could safely ignore. At least, I should be able to ignore it except that VC8 insists on converting it to error C1021 which is a fatal error and stops compilation. The actual line looks something like this:-
It makes no difference what the message says. I've tried several different messages but they all get converted to error C1021. It almost looks as if my compiler doesn't realise that #warning is a valid pre-processor statement. And yet, according to this MSDN entry #warning has been valid since at least VC6.Code:#warning The warning message
I've tried opening the project's properties and selecting different warning levels but none of the settings made any difference. Is there something I need to do to tell the compiler that #warning isn't an error condition?
At the end of the day I could just comment the line out but I'd prefer to understand why it's not working.
