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