Warnings similar to the following are generated even if you use the warning pragma to disable the warning:
warning C4786:
'std::rb_tree<CAiSpanningTree<State,std::less<State>>::TransClosureNode, CAiSpanningTree<State,std::less<State>>::TransClosureNode,std::ident<Cai SpanningTree<State,std::less<State>>::TransClosureNode,CAiSpanningTree<S tate,std::less<State>>::TransClosureNode>,std::less<CAiSpanningTree<Stat e,std::less<State>>::TransClosureNode>>' : identifier was truncated to '255' characters in the debug information
The code:
   #pragma warning(disable:4786)
disables warnings that list the file and line number. For example:
   C:\test\Text.cpp(25) : warning C4786:


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

This problem was corrected in Microsoft Visual C++ .NET.


This warning can be ignored. However, the identifier may not be accessible or viewable in the debugger.
