Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-05-31 11:32:45 UTC
I'm getting pointless cast warnings when assigning literals. An implicit conversion fo the types does not exist but the compiler automatically converts literals in these cases AFAIK.

uint t;
t = 6;

float t;
t = 6.0;

y, but 

float t;
t = 6.0;

isn't correct - the IDE should warn on that since it doesn't compile. The bug was in :

uint t;
t = 6;

int->uint conversion does the compiler.

As per comment 3,I mark this as verified.
