Arguments

Default
-check-pointers-narrowing
or
/Qcheck-pointers-narrowing
The compiler enables the narrowing of pointers to structure fields.
Description
This option determines whether the compiler enables or disables the narrowing of pointers to structure fields. Narrowing restricts a field pointer so that it can only legally point to that field.
To use this option, you must also specify the
[Q]check-pointers
option.
Disabling this feature can improve Pointer Checker compatibility with non-ANSI compliant code.
To disable the narrowing of pointers to structure fields, specify the negative form of the option (see Syntax above).
This pointer checker feature requires installation of another product. For more information, see Feature Requirements.
Alternate Options
