    I have written this code

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main() {
        unsigned char c;
        int i = 2;
        return 0;
    and compiled it with "gcc -ansi -pedantic file.c" but still it is giving only warning but no error for declaring "i" after an action statement. Why ?

    pedantic increases the number of things to complain about.

    If you want actual errors, then consider
    Make all warnings into errors.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
