Thanks for the correction. I'm referring to the C standard; I think C++
follows basically the same rules but don't have a spec handy to refer to.
FTR, the relevant section is 7.1.3, which lists the following rules:
- All identifiers that begin with an underscore and either an uppercase letter
or another underscore are always reserved for any use.
- All identifiers that begin with an underscore are always reserved for use as
identifers with file scope in both the ordinary and tag name spaces.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
