#4010 closed defect (fixed)

IGOR: Strange code in drawInventory()

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: eriktorbjorn
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Igor
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Current ScummVM CVS:

While building ScummVM with the -O2 compiler option, I ran into the following warning:

engines/igor/igor.cpp: In member function ‘void Igor::IgorEngine::drawInventory(int, int)’: engines/igor/igor.cpp:1308: warning: assuming signed overflow does not occur when assuming that (X + c) >= X is always true

This is the part of drawInventory() that GCC complains about:

int end = start + 6; if (start <= end) {

Is this deliberate behaviour? It seems risky, at best.

It looks like this whole "if (start <= end)" statement should be removed, as it's always true

Yes, that's what I would think too. Unless there's overflow involved. When I wrote "It seems risky", I was referring to the overflow part of the warning. The size of an "int" is not guaranteed, so we can't know when it overflows.

But I'd still feel better if I knew what kind of values the engine passes to that function.

I've removed the test. Since the parameters are used as index into an array with 74 elements, integer overflow seems unlikely, to say the least.
