d3dUtil.h(108): warning C4056: overflow in floating-point constant arithmetic RenderToTexDemo.cpp


const float INFINITY = FLT_MAX;

float.h has


#define FLT_MAX         3.402823466e+38F        /* max value */


this is the source code link


http://www.d3dcoder.net/Data/Book2/PartIII.zip, its the RenderToTex sample inside the chapter 21 folder


the compiler i am using is vs 2013, i remember compiling this before with vs2010 with no issues, can anyone help?

The name "INFINITY" is probably already defined as something else (like in Windows.h or D3D9.h). Just use FLT_MAX instead of renaming it.

Also, "infinity" is a bad name for it, as they are not the same thing and you can do for example FLT_MAX / 2 and get a new number that is no longer FLT_MAX.
