Rule 10.3 covers assignment (as defined in the glossary) and the conversion of the constant expression in case labels.
Exception 1 says "A non-negative integer constant expression of essentially signed type may be assigned
to an object of essentially unsigned type if its value can be represented in that type."
Is this exception intended to be restricted to assignment; or does it also apply to case labels?
Code: Select all
switch (u8a) // controlling expression is essentially unsigned
case 1: break; // '1' is essentially signed; 10.3 violation?
case 2: break;

The intent of the MISRA-C working group was that Exception 1 should also apply to conversions on a switch statementâ€™s case label.
This will be clarified in the forthcoming Technical Corrigendum and your example should be considered compliant with rule 10.3.
