Re: Fails to compile as ANSI or K&R

Rich,

Thanks for the response. It is mostly an issue of support. We have
a very complex set of development tools spanning several operating
systems, platforms and target CPUs. We have a requirement for a
certain level of support and tracability etc. for any tools used for
commercial development and are not in a position to meet those
requirements for gcc.

Rgds,
Kenneth
