W1022 Comparison always evaluates to True (Delphi)
Go Up to Error and Warning Messages (Delphi)
The compiler has determined that the expression will always evaluate to true. This most often can be the result of a boundary test against a specific variable type, for example, a Integer against $80000000.
In versions of the Object Pascal compiler prior to 12.0, the hexadecimal constant $80000000 would have been a negative Integer value, but with the introduction of the int64 type, this same constant now becomes a positive int64 type. As a result, comparisons of this constant against Integer variables will no longer behave as they once did.
As this is a warning rather than an error, there is no standard method of addressing the problems: sometimes the warning can be ignored, sometimes the code must be rewritten.
program Produce; var i : Integer; c : Cardinal; begin c := 0; i := 0; if c >= 0 then Writeln('true'); if i < $80000000 then Writeln('true'); end.
Here the compiler determines that the two expressions will always be true. In the first case, a Cardinal, which is unsigned, will always be greater or equal to 0. In the second case, a 32-bit Integer value will always be smaller than an int64 value of $80000000.
