             Bug #: 14820
           Summary: warn on invalid assignment
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

    Classification: Unclassified

I think this C code has undefined behaviour:

  enum E { X, Y, Z };
  void test() {
    enum E e = -1;

and we don't currently warn on that. If you later query e == -1 we warn on
*that*, but that's somewhat redundant as UB has already occurred.

We have a similar problem in C++, but at least it's safer:

  enum E { X, Y, Z };
  void test() {
    E e = (E)-1;

doesn't warn. We should also warn on 'return (E)-1;' and similar.
