Hi !

Hmm, that's exactly as in the info page.

Well, here it is:
        Downgrade messages about nonconformant code from errors to
        warnings. By default, G++ effectively sets -pedantic-errors
        without -pedantic; this option reverses that. This behavior and
        this option are superseded by -pedantic, which works as it does
        for GNU C. 
I admit, I'm not a native speaker, so please correct me.
Doesn't that mean, if you don't specify any pedantic, it defaults
to -pedantic-errors for C++, but if you specify -pedantic, you don't
get errors for warnings like it should be... ??
