I could go and just do blind type changes from int to tmsize_t until the compiler is satisfied but that's just a losing battle if we keep adding new code that has such warnings. Is there some gcc flag we can add to make it NOT compile such code?
GCC is one of the least useful compilers for reporting such issues.
Incidentally, what do we do for Windows? When new code is committed into libtiff, how do we even know that it builds under Windows? We can certainly make it so that at least the Windows compiler treats these warnings as errors.
I am not sure. From time to time I compile under Windows using the MinGW compiler since it is most convenient for me. It is not clear to me that any of the libtiff maintainers are using MSVC to regularly build libtiff under Windows. The probability that one of us is doing 64-bit builds under Windows is quite small.
