    Erm, well, that's up to you. There's no reason not to.

    I agree. It is not worth incompatibility with C89 just to save a few keystrokes.

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

    I don't understand why I need compatibility with C89. If I'm not going to work with old code or move to a system that doesn't handle C99, isn't it better to use the newest language?
