i'm rather meticulous & don't really like warnings.
as more files come in, more warnings come in.
they flood the screen and it gets hard to see errors.
n i'd prefer not to turn off warnings in the first place.

maybe i shouldn't mention it's required "to compile properly".
rather, it should be "to compile without warning".

ps: sorry for getting off topic... discontinuing.
