If you're talking FreeBSD 5, you should be able to simply subsitute a C99 "flexible array member" (basically replace "" with "") and get the same effect. 0-length arrays are a gcc extension: http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Zero-Length.html Under FreeBSD 4.x, you can't use them because gcc 2.95 only supports the gcc extension. Intel has added support for a lot of gcc extensions recently; they may be willing to add this to the list. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
