Which other error? Are you talking about:

Again, this is only style. You can see in one hand that the index can  
never be negative and so put it as unsigned, in another hand you can  
say that the name will never be longer than the int limit  
(+2,147,483,647) so you can use int. There is another thing: putting  
it as unsigned helps the compiler warning you if you try (by mistake)  
to assign a negative value to the index. Well, here is a really  
simple code, so it's OK to leave signed int. But in practice it's a  
good reflex to always use unsigned when you don't need negative values.

Which warning does it raises?
