Compiler Warning (level 2) C4309

Error Message

'conversion' : truncation of constant value

The type conversion causes a constant to exceed the space allocated for it. You may need to use a larger type for the constant.

The following sample generates C4309:

// C4309.cpp
// compile with: /W2
int main()
   char c = 128;   // C4309
