Re: "Untyped variable" bug???

Hello Ian,

Thank you, and thanks to Rod, for testing out other configurations.
I am now (trying) to upgrade our version of gcc to 2.8.1.
Unfortunately, the build is failing, and I've sent a bug report
to gcc-bugs.  Some days, I guess it doesn't pay to be a stickler
for details.  ^_^;;;;;

Once I finally get 2.8.1 built and installed, and I test it on
this program, I will let you all know the results!

Hello Bob,

I have tried the executable you sent me and get the problem.  I have also
now tried with gcc (and 2.7.2) on Solaris 2.5.1, and, from the mailing
list, Rod Armstrong has tried gcc 2.8 and 2.8.1 and none of them have the
problem, so it is looking like a gcc glitch.

Perhaps you should try or 2.8.1 - Sun-style packages are
available from
