    Interesting laserlight. Thanks for that. I've been lazy about buying the Standard to be honest. Since I'm still going through my early apprenticeship of C, I've not been very motivated to do it. But I think it's time.

    "Obsolescent feature" is the kind of wording to take seriously on a language standard, despite we knowing it will never be dropped. So int main(void), indeed.

    Unless you're writing your own implementation, the freely available draft standard is sufficient.

    Indeed.

    That's what we said about gets, and look what happened.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Hmmm Interesting.

    This is using VS 2008 Professional.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
       return 0;
    }
    Compiling to Manifest....
    Build: 1 Succeeded 0 Fail 0 Up-to-Date
    Same piece of code compiled with the LCC:

    Compiling....
    Dir:C\:AdaSkylaRose\.....\dummy.c
    Results:
    Compilation Succeeded with 0 Errors 1 Warning
    "out-dated function definition used"
    Clearly Visual Studio uses the C89 standard which we all know. The point I
    was getting at is compiler vendors are even trying to get function parameters
    and prototypes declared to the letter of the standard. This is like having an
    angry professor stood over your shoulder while you code...
    It's a great thing.
