c++ - Obsolete -Ju ?
I have a slight problem with the now considered obsolete -Ju (and -J) sc option (in C, not C++) the code I write uses "unsigned char" only, like most people outside the US, as I need to use the char as index in vectors.And, yes, there are people that use char >127 every day. So, "blahblah" is signed char *, it is a bit heavy to put (unsigned char *) in front of each "..." and '.' in programs, right ? Then, when I call library functions, they are all declared signed char, in parameters and result, so casting again at all lines, really heavy. (I do not feel like tweaking all system include files to get them correctly, because at each update I would have to do it again.) If I want to compile without fatal errors I have to disable the type checking with -Jm, then I loose the benefit of type checking, not nice if I want to create ANSI clean code. Some months ago -Ju was silent, now with the "obsolete" message it is rather noisy. So, as I don't believe that unsigned char are seen as a necessary standard, it would be nice just to have -Ju back to its former silent behavior, please. (DMC must be the only remaining compiler with signed char by default, no ?) Jean-Pierre
