by disabling a -W-flag ... I lol'd
Of the 1047 warnings, 380 of them are generated by this one warning flag. Iíve gone ahead and just disabled it in util/macros for now.
Lol, some warning flags are quite useless in fact... i.e. stuff like -Weff-c++ ...
Well, warnings is warnings, it's not errors, it just means, that your code is using some obsolete functions, that still works, but might be removed in later compiler versions, or you are using some unsafe things, that works, but shouldnt be used, and so on. And, in open source world, where everything began many years ago with the first versions of compilers, old part of code is almost never rewritten, and it gets more and more warnings with newer compiler versions - there is like 1 out of 100000 packages in linux, that does not give you any warnings, when you try to compile it. i.e., linux kernel gives hundreds of thousands of warnings.
