Making mbedTLS /W4 compliant for Visual Studio compiler

Hi all,

We're using mbedTLS in the IoTivity project. As part of our work we're making sure that there are no level 4 warnings during compilation (Visual Studio 2013 and 2015 for x86 and amd64 architectures). I have already made the required changes for mbedTLS but they are only local to IoTivity and now I was wondering if you'd be interested in having them integrated in the "development" branch?

I'd be happy to create a pull request with all the changes. Please let me know, what do you think about this idea.

Thanks, Pawel

Thanks, Ron. I've created a pull request.

I could use some help regarding the messages I get from check-generated-files.sh and check-names.sh. Where can I find some information about them?

Hi Pawel,
It is recommended that Pull Request specific questions should be addressed in the Pull Request itself, so it could remain in context.
I see in the Pull Request that only check-names.sh has failed. Am I missing something?
In case of failures in the CI, I suggest you run the scripts in your local folder (they are located in tests/scripts folder) to help you understand the reason for failures. As you can see in the check-names script:


and in the CI log you see the following:

$ tests/scripts/check-names.sh
Analysing source code...
1193 macros
     146 enum-consts
977 identifiers

From the output it means that tests/scripts/list-symbols.sh has failed.
The returned error was 2 (ENOENT), I am guessing that it is because libmbed*.a was not found in the nm command, because of compilation error (fatal error: 'winsock2.h' file not found), which returned error 2
I hope this helps
