how to stop "array may not be initialized" warning
Posted on 2003-12-01
my class has an array of ints named "calls" and an int "calls_size" to keep track of it's size. I know this screams for a Vector but I think it is a pain in the butt using a vector for ints, too much screwing around with Object nonsense
anyway, this function should return an array of ints matching "calls" but with "calls_size" at the begining, so if calls==10,11,12 then results=3,10,11,12
it has been awhile since I have used java, especially with arrays, so I'm not sure if my whole open ended array idea will work, but at any rate, line 06 gives me a compilation error: "variable results might not have been initialized".
I am quite aware of this fact and I don't care if it is initialized or not since I am manually tracking the size. This error stops compilation, however. Is there any way to demote the error to simply a warning? Any suggestions regarding my scheme would also be welcomed.
01 public int getCalls()
05 int results;
06 results = calls_size;
07 for(int i = 1; i <= calls_size; i++)
09 results[i] = calls[i];
11 return results;
