    Compiler Options

    Hello everyone,

    I have a question about DJGPP and possibly DevC++. In DJGPP, it allows for methods to be declared in the following way:

    main( argc, argv )
    int argc;
    char *argv[];

    DJGPP allows for the arguements to be declared on the lines following the method header. Then the body of the method can be declared. Does anybody know if there is a switch or command line compiler option for DevC++ or MingW that allows the compiler to compile methods declared that way??????

    -traditional or -std=c89 perhaps?

    Keep in mind that what you want has been deprecated (i.e. formally flagged as obsolete) in C since the 1989 standard came out. It has never been valid C++

    That said -traditional is the most common flag to use on unix C compilers. I've yet to hear of it working sensibly to compile C++ code (eg class member functions) though.
