Description Joseph S. Myers 2005-02-15 18:47:13 UTC
The test

#include <limits.h>

f (void)
  int c = INT_MAX + 1;

should yield only warnings, not an error, with -pedantic-errors.
Not a regression.

Comment 2 Manuel López-Ibáñez 2006-12-09 14:28:13 UTC
I believe that the culprit is a call to constant_expression_warning at c-typeck.c (store_init_value). The comment just above this call says "ANSI wants warnings about out-of-range constant initializers". However, if the out-of-range constant initialiser is the result of an operation, a warning has been emitted already by overflow_warning. If the out-of-range is the result of a value that overflowed when converted to the type of the variable, a warning should have been emitted by convert_and_check. 

So my question is, are we required to emit a special (pedantic) warning for: 

int c= INT_MAX + 1; 

different from the warning we already give for:

int c;
c = INT_MAX + 1;

Comment 3 Manuel López-Ibáñez 2006-12-10 17:17:56 UTC
This patch seems to fix this. I get:

XPASS: gcc.dg/overflow-warn-3.c constant (test for bogus messages, line 42)
XPASS: gcc.dg/overflow-warn-4.c constant (test for bogus messages, line 42)

and no new failures on the overflow testcases.

I still have to properly bootstrap and regression test it. Any thoughts?
