I just realized that the AngelScript compiler does not seem to warn if an expression has no effect.

int myVar = 5;

myVar; // Could raise a warning

This is not so much an issue for variable related statements but in case someone wants to call a function and fails to append the paranthesis after the function name the function is not called and no warning is generated.


void SomeFunction()

SomeFunction; // Would be nice to have a warning raised here.

Just a thought...
