QUESTION

When I compile my C source file the compiler reports the following diagnostic:

WARNING 260: POINTER TRUNCATION

ANSWER

This warning occurs when pointer truncation would occur as a result of converting a pointer either implicitly or explicitly converted to a pointer with a smaller offset.

The pointer is converted but the offset is truncated to fit into the smaller pointer (which is probably wrong).
