Is it some way to get rid of all
copiler warnings due to the platform specific thing?

( I mean like:

[Warning] test.dpr(524): Symbol 'INDEX' is specific to a platform)

Hmmm... There are 2 different kind of new warnings in D6. Those are the 2 kinds. Please look in the help file for documentation about the warnings. I'm not sure, what "deprecated" means...   :-)

This is what we have in a WARNINGS.INC file we include at the top of units which display these sorts of warnings:

{$IFNDEF SUPPRESS_WARNINGS_INC}

{$WARN SYMBOL_PLATFORM OFF}
{$WARN SYMBOL_DEPRECATED OFF}
{$WARN SYMBOL_LIBRARY ON}
{$WARN UNIT_DEPRECATED ON}
{$WARN UNIT_LIBRARY ON}
{$WARN UNIT_PLATFORM OFF}

{$ENDIF}

BTW: Borland uses 'deprecated' to mean that the unit, library. or symbol is obsolete and may disappear in a future version of delphi (ie: this is a warning, use the 'new' ways of doing these things).

Cheers,

Raymond.
