Hey Andrew!

AA> On Debian with gcc 8 I wasn't getting any warnings.

No surprise here. Of all the different versions of gcc over the years gcc 4
was my favourite. That was the last release I was able to stick with pure C.
Almost everything has gone downhill since.

AA> Any suggestions?

Other than sticking with what you feel comfortable with, no. It works here
despite the warnings so you don't really have much to sweat.

AA> Things are working fine right now so I'm reluctant to change the
AA> code until I really understand well how best to fix those
AA> warnings.

An excellent plan.

Right now I am wrestling with the rustc/firefox breakage and whether or not to
continue on this latest so-called upgrade into extreme overbloating of
something I never ever cared about (ie gui/web crap).

Kis these days eh? :::sigh:::

Life is good,
