Compiler Warning C4958

Error Message

'operation' : pointer arithmetic is not verifiable

Using pointer arithmetic will produce an unverifiable image.

For more information, see Pure and Verifiable Code.

This warning is issued as an error and can be disabled with the warning pragma or the /wd compiler option.

The following sample generates C4958:

// C4958.cpp
// compile with: /clr:safe
// #pragma warning( disable : 4958 )
using namespace System;

int main( ) {
   Int32 arr[] = new Int32[10];
   Int32* p = &arr[0];
   p++;   // C4958

The compiler implements array operations with pointer arithmetic. Therefore, native arrays are not verifiable; use a CLR array instead. For more information, see array.

The following sample generates C4958:

// C4958b.cpp
// compile with: /clr:safe
// #pragma warning( disable : 4958 )

int main() {
   int array[5];
   array[4] = 0;   // C4958
