If memory servers me correctly those are warnings that pop up when you're compiling your code. However unlick syntax errors/warnings, these are the result of you inputting a "," instead of a "." about 40 lines above where the warning error shows up or in a completely different file that you're including as an object ( you'll get to this in about your 2nd to 3rd programming class ).

It was this exact type of error that caused me to realize that programing wasn't for me ( spent nearly 2 weeks to find out that my code wasn't working because I put a "," instead of a "." on like 487th line of a 15,000 line program ( once you inlcude all of the objects that were created and included ) only to find the cause of the error about 3 hrs before the program was due, and I barely got all of the comments of "why ain't this ******** god **** thing workign!?!?!" and etc out so I could turn it in ( that comment mentioned above was a common comment with many of the groups in my class.

As it turned out the professor put the error in one of the ojbects on purpose to see if any of us would find the error to make the program work. Happily my partner and I were one of 3 groups to find the error and fix it out of the 37 groups in the class.

Statement unnecessarily nested in else clause

This is why I would like to avoid doing programming as a profession. It would kill it as a hobby.

Warnings? Ignore them if it makese sense.
Errors? Now you have a problem.

So which is it?

I believe he was saying that Compilation warning are simply warnings that will pop up that inform you that you have a "possible" error in your program code, doesnt say where, just that there is. So then you have to scroll through your code to find your error.

So rly a warning that informs you of an error. Unless im mistaken mayor.

I belive you are Dunador, unless you're using a different compiler than me (MVS is mine for most everything). Warrnings give the line that could have a problem if writen wrong. Errors are problems that prevent compilation in the first place.

Everything would work fine if I left the warnings in the code. I just set the warnings to a level I am comfortable with and then go through and clean up the code. I hate leaving unused code in the application, however I am the architect for an application containing a quarter million lines of code which is maintained by a small internal programming team, vendors, contractors and an off-shore contracting company. With a lot of fingers in the pie, I try to make sure that the resulting code is up to my standards which occasionally means I spend days removing compiler warnings. The problem is if you have 500 warnings, you may miss something vital.

Oh dear. I guess it pays to examine bit by bit then. Though, I bet you have other things on your plate as opposed to massive warnnings like that.

Start with Visual Basic. Granted, it's not like just about every other language, but it's a good launchpoint.

personally I agree with how my college had us start at C++ using the lynx compilar gpp. Its good to get a basic understanding of what you have to do, but after you get that basic understanding move on to stuff like visual basic.
