Compiler Error C2617

'function' : inconsistent return statement

The specified function does not have a declared return type, and a previous return statement did not supply a value.

The following sample generates C2617:

// C2617.cpp
int i;
func() {   // no return type prototype
   if( i ) return;   // no return value
   else return( 1 );   // C2617 detected on this line
}

Possible resolution:

// C2617b.cpp
// compile with: /c
int i;
int MyF() {
   if (i)
      return 0;
   else 
      return (1);
}
