Diagnostic 2304: non-explicit constructor with single argument may cause implicit type conversion

Jump to solution

How can I control (e.g., disable) this C++ warning? I am using version 12.1.4 on OS X.

      warning #2304: non-explicit constructor with single argument may cause implicit type conversion

/* This warning is given under the -Weffc++ switch on code like the example below. What it is telling you is that you should probably make this constructor "explicit". If you don't then it can possibly be used in type conversions and in that case there is no way to specify a value for the default argument. So what are your options for avoiding this warning? (1) Declare the constructor explicit (2) Don't use the -Weffc++ option (3) Disable this particular warning either with #pragma warning (disable:2304) inside the code or by using the command line option -diag-disable 2304 */ class C { public: C(int, int j = 0); };

Thanks! I'll be using the -diag-disable trick since this happens for me in C++ source files which don't belong to me that I'd prefer not to change.
