    Correct, the cast itself isn't what makes it fail - it is the lack of including the correct header-file. However, not including the correct header file does happen from time to time.

    If you are using an ANSI-compliant C compiler, it shouldn't complain about casting from void * to any other type. If you do get a warning or error, it is most likely because you are compiling with a C++ compiler.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
