Asio SSL overflow in constant

Keywords: asio SSL options overflow int Cc:


Dear Chris,

I am getting a warning about overflow in SSL context options.

Environment: Ubuntu Quantal (development) boost trunk (also applies to 1.50 1.51, ...) Configured with: ../src/configure -v --with-pkgversion='Ubuntu/Linaro? 4.7.1-6ubuntu1' --with-bugurl=file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.7/README.Bugs --enable-languages=c,c++,go,fortran,objc,obj-c++ --prefix=/usr --program-suffix=-4.7 --enable-shared --enable-linker-build-id --with-system-zlib --libexecdir=/usr/lib --without-included-gettext --enable-threads=posix --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.7 --libdir=/usr/lib --enable-nls --with-sysroot=/ --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-libstdcxx-debug --enable-libstdcxx-time=yes --enable-gnu-unique-object --enable-plugin --enable-objc-gc --disable-werror --with-arch-32=i686 --with-tune=generic --enable-checking=release --build=x86_64-linux-gnu --host=x86_64-linux-gnu --target=x86_64-linux-gnu Thread model: posix gcc version 4.7.1 (Ubuntu/Linaro? 4.7.1-6ubuntu1)

/adnet/boost-1.50.0/include/boost/asio/ssl/context_base.hpp:92:42: warning: overflow in implicit constant conversion [-Woverflow]

In context_base.hpp

Note in /usr/include/openssl/ssl.h:564:23019:

/* SSL_OP_ALL: various bug workarounds that should be rather harmless.
 *             This used to be 0x000FFFFFL before 0.9.7. */
#define SSL_OP_ALL                                      0x80000BFFL

the new value seems to overflow?

could you please consider something in the lines of:

or, if you do not consider that a bug, silence the warning?

note that SSL_CTX_set_options takes a long, if I am not mistaken

Thanks in advance, Ramon
