Warning: assigning const char* to char*
This is a very simple question but I couldn't find it in your FAQ.
I'm using VC++ and compiling a C program, using the /TC flag.
I've got a function for comparing two strings
int strspcmp(const char * s1, const char * s2)
char* pS1 = s1;
char* pS2 = s2;
As you can see, I assign the two const ptrs to some non-const ptrs to do some ptr arithmetic,
like incrementing the ptrs to compare the strings.
But I'm getting warning C4090 complaining about the assignment.
I thought I was doing the standard thing for ptr arithmetic. What am I doing wrong?
How do I get rid of the warning?
