    Unhappy One question about array and function prototype declaration

    Hello all, do you think this below code will be compiled and work???
    I used VS 2005 and it did not work. but I haven't tried any other compiler yet!!.
    I will have to take exam about C programming. and the exam instruction says that I am not allowed to make change to any function signature!!

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int foo (int [] a);
    
    int main()
    {
         //... more code...
         return 0;
    }
    
    int foo (int[] a)
    {
    
    }

    Try putting the [] after the variable name.

    Edit: And return an int from your function.

    yeah, RIGHT!!!
    Code:
    int a[]
    is the correct form in C!

    However, I am asking them to clarify about that.
