Hi All ,

The below sample caught my attention i.e

int a ;
unsigned int  b;
int func()
return a =b;
the compiler didn't warn  me about the signed mismatch in the above case.
where as

int *a ;
unsigned int  *b;
int func()
a =b;
return *a;
compiler warns me as

warning: pointer targets in assignment differ in signedness [-Wpointer-sign]

I’m bit confused or i'm missing something here .

any thoughts ??
