D.gnu - Unused variables warning with -Wextra flag

Hi,

Some warning messages are being "leaked" from GDC's source code 
into end-user's code. I think this shouldn't happen and hence, is 
a bug.

```
// example.d
import std.string;

void main()
{
   format("Hello World");
}

```
Here's the output:

```
[shell]$ gdc -Wextra example.d
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d: In function 'decode':
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d:856: warning: 
uninitialized variable 'result'
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d: In function 'decode':
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d:856: warning:

$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d: In function 'decode':
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/utf.d:856: warning: 
uninitialized variable 'result'
example.d: In function 
'std.format.formattedWrite!(Appender!(string), char, 
).formattedWrite':
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/format.d:504: warning: 
'iftmp.16' may be used uninitialized in this function
$INSTALLDIR/gcc/include/d/4.8.0/std/format.d:504: warning: 
'iftmp.17' may be used uninitialized in this function
```

So, all these warnings seem to be from GDC. Is there a way to 
supress these warnings? (for GDC's libs, not my own code).

The iftmp's shouldn't be emitted, the others though are because it's a template instantiated into the module you are compiling. Regards -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Fixed both: https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC/commit/064ca974963fd4a7e2d00254f448f529ecee7203 In the first instance, was because the code generation assumed that vresult for a function get initialised on declaration. For whatever reason this is no longer the case (it gets constructed later). In the second instance, the way gcc optimised the code paths for the function, these values never got initialised. In this instance, I see that this way being generated. { uint iftmp; /* ... */ { _d_array_bounds( ... ); fun.2 = &fun.1 + iftmp; // iftmp uninitialised here, however, because of _d_array_bounds, we'll never hit this line in runtime. /* ... */ } } The functions _d_array_bounds, and others in the family are strictly speaking, noreturn functions, as they do not return naturally apart from through a thrown Exception / Error. Have marked these library functions as noreturn so now the use of iftmp is optimised away. So no false positive warning will be emitted. Regards -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Thanks Iain! Frankly, I'm new to GDC, so I didn't understand your 
explanation, but anyways, I'll pull from Git and re-check on my 
PC.

One was caused by a change in the front-end having a knock-on effect in gdc. The other caused by dead code elimination (and also the lack of in this case). Regards -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';
