    Code:
    while (1) {
       printf("forever");
    }

    Code:
    for(;;)
    {
        printf("Alternative infinite loop.\n");
    }

    Code:
    Loop:
       printf( "Infinite loop with goto." );
       goto Loop;

    I like doing it this way:

    Code:
    #define forever while(1)
    
    forever {
            printf("loop\n");
    }

    I do not think it is worth the trouble though. for (;;) and while (1) are universally recognised as deliberate infinite loops.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
