Visual Studio 6 is not standards conformant. If you are trying to "prove" that something you think is correct actually is, DO NOT test it in Visual studio 6. Try a better compiler like gcc/g++, or VS.Net 2003.

I''ve heard people say that GCC is more standards complient (as is MinGW) than VC6, and Borland''s compilers are more standards complient than VC6 sa wel..

well, it''s difficult to make a *fully* standard compliant compiler, with all the nooks and crannys in the standard(s). vc7 and gcc probably come as close to standard-compliant as you''re going to get these days for a production-level compiler, and that''s usually good enough.

Maybe the standard is broken, and not the compilers?



"Laughter means distance. Where laughter is absent, madness begins. The moment one takes the world with complete seriousness one is potentially insane. The whole art of learning to live means holding fast to laughter; without laughter the world is a torture chamber, a dark place where dark things will happen to us, a horror show filled with bloody deeds of violence."
-- Jens Bjørneboe
