In the meantime, a not quite so fragile semi-solution would be to have
const SOCKET MEOW_INVALID_SOCKET = INVALID_SOCKET;
- at least that cuts it down to a single warning. Furthermore, you could
put that in a header file specifically for such stuff so you'd easily
recognize which warnings to ignore.
