I don't really consider this a bug as I don't support
6.2 C++. If you can get it to compile great. Otherwise I
will consider it a feature request.
It's not a question of supporting a particular
compiler, both gcc and SunProC are respected products.
The point is that different compilers are tolerant in
different ways. You should support good code that meets
When a particular compiler issues a warning message it
is generally for a reason. In this case it is telling
you that you have masked values, have functions that
don't return and have constants not initialised and
have functions that are not accessible.
Perhaps through luck and redundency in the code this
doesn't matter. Perhaps the gcc compiler is deficient
in not telling you. I don't know or really care, I
offer to help by pointing out these problems with the
program. Correcting these things can only improve aspell.
