Question c++ 11


Hi!

this code:

int main( void )
{
}

compiles with gcc 4.8.2 on slackware 14.1 without option or -Wall option. No warnings.

So what is the question?

There are no syntax erros, so there should be no errors.

What results is an empty main function.

the function main "int main()" returns an integer, it cant compile and execute. see other compilers. it is a bug or c++ 11?

Depends entirely on the compiler. It isn't a defined error, and at most generates a warning (function returns no value).

And being the main function, a return value isn't required. declaring it "void main(void)" gets the same result...
