Compiler Warning & Information Messages
|Reported by:||ydario||Owned by:||rlwalsh|
rwalsh: I consider *every* message that the compiler generates to be a problem. If nothing else, having thousands of "harmless" messages makes it nearly impossible to find and fix the few that are actually telling you something important.
Eliminating all these messages is unbelievably boring & time- consuming, but essential, IMHO. So far, I've eliminated nearly all messages when compiling these directories:
advapi32, crypt32, kernel32, ntdll, user32, and winmm
There are two info messages that can't be eliminated because of the odd way that debug printf()'s are turned off (i.e. "the condition is always TRUE" & "the condition is always FALSE"). For these, I'm just using sed to filter them from the output:
nmake 2>&1 | sed -u /EDC042/D | tee build.log
