Compiler Warning (level 4) C4429

possible incomplete or improperly formed universal-character-name

The compiler detected a character sequence that may be a badly formed universal character name. A universal character name is \u followed by four hex digits, or \U followed by eight hex digits.

The following sample generates C4429:

// C4429.cpp
// compile with: /W4 /WX
int \ug0e4 = 0;   // C4429
// Try the following line instead:
// int \u00e4 = 0;   // OK, a well-formed universal character name.
