C6509

warning C6509: invalid annotation: 'return' cannot be referenced from a precondition

This warning indicates that the return keyword cannot be used in a precondition. The return keyword is used to terminate the execution of a function and return control to the calling function.

The following code generates this warning because return is used in a precondition:

#include <sal.h>

int f (_In_reads_(return) char *pc)
{
    // code ...
    return 1;
}

To correct this warning, use the following code:

#include <sal.h>

int f (_In_reads_(i) char *pc, int i)
{
    // code ...
    return 1;
}
