    No compiler is 100% standard complient......and especially not C99.

    The newer version of VC++ is closer to the C++ standard.....(It had one of Bjarne's old boys in charge of design)...

    I heard GCC is pretty good compliency wise

    I am not sure if this work but if you change the file name from cpp to c the compilers sometimes adjust to be more C99 compliant.
