    Dear sir, I have some doubts regarding the second assignment.
    For int a = 3.14.

    While using flags “-Wall” and “-Wall -Werror” , I got the executable file in both cases and along with that I did not receive any warning message The output in both cases was 3 instead of 3.14.
    As per your lecture “-Wall -Werror” should not give any executable file.

    For const int a = 10.

    While using flags “-Wall” and “-Wall -Werror” both cases I did not get any executable files.
    As per your lecture “-Wall ” should give one executable file with some warning message.
    Please clarify my doubts in this regard

    Dear Tapas,

    The recent versions of C++ have the ability to perform dynamic implicit type-casting. Therefore, they will allow statements like,
    int a = 3.14
    This is done mainly to make life easy for programmers but as you can see that the value printed on the screen for a is 3 and not 3.14 because a is declared to hold an integer value.

    When you declare a variable with const keyword, C++ will not allow any further re-assignment. Anything declared with const keyword provides read-only access and it can not be overwritten with any new value. Because reassignment is not semantically correct for any const type variable, it will not produce any executable file.
