errors.hpp in Boost Test requires warning C4946 to be off

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Raffi Enficiaud
Milestone: Boost 1.67.0 Component: test
Version: Boost 1.64.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


Hi all, when compiling the Boost Test library with MSVC 2015 and warning C4946 (reinterpret_cast between related types) set as an error, the build fails. The specific_param_error class uses reinterpret_cast in its operator functions (lines 89 and 99 in errors.hpp).

I am aware that this warning is off by default but at least suppress_warnings.hpp should list this warning. Also, a comment in the source why a reinterpret_cast was necessary in the first place, would be helpful.

Does the code works as expected if you modify the reinterpret_cast to a static_cast ?
