in thread using strict and functions

Hmm...I think you meant to say C++ here. C doesn't give you that kind of flexibility; however, C++ does.

#include <stdio.h> int main ( int iArgC, char * apsqArgV[] ) { printf ( "Hello, world! This is cygwqin speaking.\n" ); { char szMsg[] = "Not so!"; printf ( "Now inside scope, msg is %s.\n", szMsg ); } return ( 0 ); // Success is zero in Windows. }
This is the kind of scope that I was talking about. The char array szMsg is declared at the start of the scope; this code compiles and runs correctly under CygWin (Win98).

You may have been talking about the following:

void FooBar ( void ) { int iBeer, iVodka; float fCredit = 20.0; .. /* Code here */ iBeer++; fCredit -= 2.50; .. /* More code */ char *apszVarious[]; /* ILLEGAL in C */ }
I will grant that this kind of variable declaration is valid in Perl but not valid in C.

    When I have been studying C it was illegal C code. Well, it was long time ago. Maybe standart have been changed. Or it is just a gcc extension to C (gcc has plenty of them).

    BTW function prototypes was not always part of C. IIRC some time ago you had to rewrite it as:

    #include <stdio.h> int main ( iArgC, apsqArgV ) int iArgC; char * apsqArgV[]; { char szMsg[] = "Not so!"; printf ( "Hello, world! This is cygwqin speaking.\n" ); { printf ( "Now inside scope, msg is %s.\n", szMsg ); } return ( 0 ); // Success is zero in Windows. }
