Compiler issue c99


hello all

I have written a peice of C code which i run and compile on SunSolaris.

I have tried to compile this source code on linux with the following errors

error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
split_field.c:955: error: for each function it appears in.)

Can anyone assist?

what command are you using to compile the code, and what is the code segment (please post in [code] tags)?

Code:
for(int i=0;i<len_string;i++)
{
        ch = string[i];
        if(ch != GLITCH)
        {   
            Split_Val[counter] = ch;
            counter++;
        }                                        
}    
Split_Val[counter]=NULL;
i am using gcc

'LINK_OPTIONS=-xarch=v9' \
'CFLAGS=-xO3 -xarch=v9 -DVERSION=$(VERSION) -DID=$(ID) -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -Linux'
'LINK=-lgen -ldl'

add "--std=c99" to your compiling command.

gcc -std=c99 -DVERSION=$(VERSION) -DID=$(ID) -DLinux

It still generates the sames errors though!

According to the error message, for(int i=0;i<len_string;i++) is not allowed.
Declare your counter (i) at the beginning of the function and remove the bold part from the for-loop.

As far as I know, the construction that you use is C++ and not C; I might however be mistaken here.

PS there is dedicated programming section on LQ. Your question probably fits better in there; you can report your post and request it to be moved (if you agree with the suggestion).
