    Why can't we use two storage specifier in front of variable

    Hi

    Why can't we use two storage specifier in front of variable

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>       
    int main() 
    { 
        static register int i = 20;
    	
    	printf("\n %d", i));
    	
        return 0; 
    }

    It might be helpful to think of the opposite as a thought experiment: what if we could specify two storage classes for a variable? What would auto extern mean?

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

    I just need to remember that we can't do this
