I just noticed that you can declare a variable at anyplace with the gcc shipped 
with Mac OS X 10.2, just as you can do it in C++ (and unlike in ANSI C). So you 
are allowed to do

Actually this is ANSI C as of the C99 standard.

Yes, I noticed that after sending my email - but what it the 'official' 
guideline wrt using this in GNU code? If we start using it then pre 3.x 
compilers will not be usable anymore...

If you mean the guideline for GNUstep code, I'd rather not use it. Call me 
backward, but I still use a 2.95 compiler on a few of my systems :-)

So do I, And I suppose there are many more out there who do. Thus, I vote for 
keeping cod e'the old way'. I also pledge to those ppl programming mere apps to 
not declare their variable like this, since I can't compile the stuff. And I am 
not willing to permanently upgrade my compiler or dig through tons of foreign 
code to be able to use certain apps. And you surely want your apps to be used 
by ppl, don't you ;-)
