Compiler Warning (level 3) C4062

enumerator 'identifier' in switch of enum 'enumeration' is not handled

The enumerate has no associated handler in a switch statement, and there is no default label.

This warning is off by default. See Compiler Warnings That Are Off by Default for more information.

The following sample generates C4062:

// C4062.cpp
// compile with: /W3
#pragma warning(default : 4062)
enum E { a, b, c };
void func ( E e ) {
   switch(e) {
      case a:
      case b:
      break;   // no default label
   }   // C4062, enumerate 'c' not handled

int main() {
