Turns overflow-error checking for integer operations on or off.

/removeintchecks[+ | -]



+ | -

Optional. The /removeintchecks- option causes the compiler to check all integer calculations for overflow errors. The default is /removeintchecks-.

Specifying /removeintchecks or /removeintchecks+ prevents error checking and can make integer calculations faster. However, without error checking, and if data type capacities are overflowed, incorrect results may be stored without raising an error.

To set /removeintchecks in the Visual Studio integrated development environment

  1. Have a project selected in Solution Explorer. On the Project menu, click Properties. For more information, see Introduction to the Project Designer.

  2. Click the Compile tab.

  3. Click the Advanced button.

  4. Modify the value of the Remove integer overflow checks box.

The following code compiles Test.vb and turns off integer overflow-error checking.

vbc /removeintchecks+ test.vb
