I agree. We use:
-ansi -Werror -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes
on all our code. Sure, it's a pain sometimes when you're developing and
temporarily comment out some code and get "variable not used" errors, but
the incidence of insidious bugs has surely dropped as a result. (Well, purify
and flexelint also helped. :-)
