    Setting up Visual Studio 2008 for ANSI Compliance

    Apologies if this in the wrong forum. Can any one tell me how to turn off the Microsoft non-standard extensions to create an ANSI standard project?

    Thanks!

    Project -> Properties -> C/C++ -> Language -> Disable Language Extensions

    Also, under General set the warning level to at least /W3. (/W4 is what I normally use, but I have heard that sometimes it gives spurious warnings.)

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