W1013 Constant 0 converted to NIL (Delphi)
Go Up to Error and Warning Messages (Delphi)
The Delphi compiler now allows the constant 0 to be used in pointer expressions in place of NIL. This change was made to allow older code to still compile with changes which were made in the low-level RTL.
program Produce; procedure p0(p : Pointer); begin end; begin p0(0); end.
In this example, the procedure p0 is declared to take a Pointer parameter yet the constant 0 is passed. The compiler will perform the necessary conversions internally, changing 0 into NIL, so that the code will function properly.
program Solve; procedure p0(p : Pointer); begin end; begin p0(NIL); end.
There are two approaches to solving this problem. In the case above the constant 0 has been replaced with NIL. Alternatively the procedure definition could be changed so that the parameter type is of Integer type.
