Compiler Warning (level 4) C4389

Error Message

'operator' : signed/unsigned mismatch

An operation involved signed and unsigned variables. This could result in a loss of data.

The following sample generates C4389:

// C4389.cpp
// compile with: /W4
#pragma warning(default: 4389)

int main()
{
   int a = 9;
   unsigned int b = 10;
   if (a == b)   // C4389
      return 0;
   else
      return 0;
};
