Disables specific compiler warnings.

disablewarnings { "warnings" }


warnings is a list of warnings to disable.

For Visual Studio, the MSC warning number should be used to specify the warning. On other compilers, the warning should be identified by name.

Applies To

Project configurations.


Premake 5.0 or later.

Xcode project generation does not yet support disablewarnings. As a workaround, you can use [[xcodebuildsettings]] like this:

xcodebuildsettings {
WARNING_CFLAGS = "-Wall -Wextra " ..
"-Wno-missing-field-initializers " ..
"-Wno-unknown-pragmas " ..
"-Wno-unused-parameter " ..
"-Wno-unused-local-typedef " ..
"-Wno-missing-braces " ..
"-Wno-microsoft-anon-tag "


Disable the GCC warning about using old-style C casts (-Wno-old-style-cast command line argument):

filter "options:cc=gcc"
disablewarnings "old-style-cast"
