Compiler Warning (level 4) C4428

Error Message

universal-character-name encountered in source

The compiler issues C4428 when it detects at least one universal character name in a source code file. To fix this warning, use the Unicode equivalent of the universal character name.

This warning is only issued once per compiland.

The following sample generates C4428:

// C4428.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /c
int \u20ac = 0;  // C4428 universal character name
/// The following line is the Unicode equivalent of \u20ac:
// int  = 0;
