My default project is edited to include "Treat warnings as errors: All" and "Warning level: 4", as well as ticking "XML documentation file" - which gives a error if I forget the XML header for a public item.
If your code has warnings, there is probably something you haven't thought of ... particularly if you are a beginner.

Well, I am not Mark, but I would prefer Delphi over .Crap any time of the day.
Though I am actually using FreePascal mostly these days, which is truly cross-platform compatible, in contrast to .NET which only pretends to be running on anything but Windows.
So I am enjoying the benefits of a sane programming language without descending into dependency hell...
And as far as compiler warnings go, I tried them always with utmost respect, as almost always, they are at least a precursor for larger problems looming. In the rare exception that I deliberately chose to ignore a warning, this piece of code will properly be mark with some comment as to why, if there is no reasonable workaround to solve offending code.
For some reason your reply was marked as spam, probably by some Delphi hater, and I could not reply, but luckily an admin reverted that.
Although I'm a .NET programmer I agree on the cross-platform thing, see: Slant pascal-based-languages-targeting-x86[^]
Just saw a new entry in the list: CodeTyphon, so Pascal definitely is not dead and buried !
I started with C and did that until that job went away, found the job with Delphi and did that job until it too played out (DoD decided they didn't want the system anymore). I wasn't looking for more Delphi but those skills got me into the current job which eventually changed projects to working in java.
All that to say this;
If someone wanted to pay me more to do Delphi than my current job pays, yes I would.
If someone wanted to pay me more to do old school C than my current job pay, yes I would.
If someone wanted to pay me more to clean up after elephants, I probably would.
I program to live, not live to program. It just pays the bills real good.
