this code:
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
    for (int i=0;i<10;++i)
        printf("blah %d\n",i);

return 0;
is giving me these errors: bash-2.05a$ gcc test.c -o test test.c: In function `main'': test.c:5: parse error before `int'' test.c:5: `i'' undeclared (first use in this function) test.c:5: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once test.c:5: for each function it appears in.) test.c:5: parse error before `)'' bash-2.05a$ pico test.c i''m quite baffled, since this is pretty much basic code that has never given me any problems before, but since i reinstalled linux, gcc has been saying that i havent been declaring my variables anybody have any idea why GCC keeps doing this? i''m running version 2.95.3

You need to name your file test.cc for c++ features to work. for (int i=0; ...) is the c++ way of doing things. The c way would be:

int i;
for (i=0; ...)

Edit: there are different ways of telling the compiler it's a c++ file of course, that's just the one I use. g++ should give you no hassles when you compile that code as well.
