RE: [cdt-dev] K & R function?

You must be young, or maybe I’m old.


In K&R C, which is really the original C, had a weird way of declaring the type of the parameters of functions. They appeared as declarations after the function name and parameter names but before the code block. Like this:


int foo(bar)

    int bar;


    return bar;



It also used int as the default return type for functions if you didn’t specify one.


It was very error prone but there’s still code out there written to it.
