It seems that an AngelScript compiler is unable to detect exhaustive switch properly.


I get an error message "Not all paths return a value" on compiling the function like:

string getValue(State state) {

  switch(state) {

  case STATE1:

    return "Value1"


    return "No Value";




So the compiler doesn't see that the switch above contains a default clause and is exhaustive,

and it's impossible to exit the function without returning a value.


Also it's good to have a compiler flag which will check that every switch is exhaustive.

This may prevent for example from serious bug where some values of enum are missing in switch.
