Older systems will warn, oddball systems will warn, non-default build options will warn (and I take one "unused global variable" warning vs. "adding two lines #ifdef/#endif"). gert -- "If was one thing all people took for granted, was conviction that if you feed honest figures into a computer, honest figures come out.
