I wish compiler writers would recognize that Undefined Behavior was meant as an invitation for compiler writers to use judgment with regard to fationale and the needs of programmers which would often vary depending upon target platform and application fieldrather than as an invitation to throw judgment out the window.
Near the ratinale first page of the introduction it says: Obviously the original creators, and then the pre-C99 standardizations, didn’t specify it that way. The potential for efficient code generation is one of the most important strengths of C.

There are many facets of the spirit of C, but the essence is a community sentiment of the underlying principles upon which the C language is based. My question is, what is rationale for allowing tentative definitions? You are really genius.
The definition model to be used for objects with external linkage was a major C89 standardization issue.
Normative Amendment 1 created a new standard for C inbut only to correct some details of the standard and to add more extensive support for rationle character sets. Either way, unless something better comes along, I will accept this answer in another day or so.
In my early daysa good C programmer was someone who knew what assembler the compiler generated. But, pre-C99 C did support declarations at the start of blocks: Contents 1 The Standard 1.
The Standard – C
Views Article Discussion View source History. Retrieved 25 September No, it’s a function pointer. In particular, a declaration that lacks a type specifier no longer has int implicitly assumed. The closest thing to an answer I seem to find is this answer explaining how mixing declarations and code was prohibited in order to allow for compilers to be single-pass back when that was important.
Yes, I missed that. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Non-portable C Although it strove to give programmers the opportunity to write truly portable programs, the C89 Committee did not want to force programmers into writing portably, to preclude the use of C as a “high-level assembler”: Do you think it would be better incorporated into the currently given answer?
This is covered in the C99 rationale section 6.
