C6326

warning C6326: potential comparison of a constant with another constant

This warning indicates a potential comparison of a constant with another constant, which is redundant code. You must check to make sure that your intent is properly captured in the code. In some cases, you can simplify the test condition to achieve the same result.

Example

The following code generates this warning because two constants are compared:

#define LEVEL  
const int STD_LEVEL = 5;

const int value = 
#ifdef LEVEL
10;
#else 
5;
#endif

void f()
{
  if( value > STD_LEVEL)
  {
    // code...
  }
  else
  {
    // code...
  }
}

The following code shows one method of correcting this warning by using the #ifdef statements to determine which code should execute:

#define LEVEL  
const int STD_LEVEL = 5;

const int value = 
#ifdef LEVEL
10;
#else 
5;
#endif

void f ()
{
#ifdef LEVEL
  {
    // code...
  }
#else
  {
    // code...
  }
#endif
}
