    I always aim for 0 warnings - that way I don't have to read thru a list of warnings to decide whether any of them are important...

    I agree, the game engine given in Tricks of the 3D Game Programming Gurus has over a thousand warnings and it's starting to annoy me.

    If the number of warnings isn't zero (1000+ is just plain stupid), then how will you spot the sudden appearance of a new warning you're really supposed to pay attention to?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Say just how serious are warnings that want you to convert ints to doubles? I have two compilers. One of them it will bring up that warning but on my other one it sees it as an error instead of a warning. I thought maybe that it could be serious becouse of that. I dunno. Any input?

    I don't think compilers are permitted to give you an error for an int->double implicit conversion.

    I aim for 0 warnings as well. If I can't eliminate a warning in code and I know it has zarroo influence on the actual functionality (such as the old MSVC long-identifier warning) then I explicitely tell the compiler not to emit it.

    I don't know how to do that.

    Someone already posted how to do it for MSVC.
    #pragma warning(disable: ####)
    where #### is the warning number.
