Scoping in for loop
Al salamo Alykom

And hi..
Thank you for reading my topic

After building this code:



        using namespace std;

        int main()
                for(int i=0; i<5 ; i++)
                        cout << "i:" << i << endl;
                i = 7;
                return 0;

I found this problem :
i read that the problem means my compiler does not support this aspect of the ANSI standard...
what is meant by that and how can i make my compiler support or not ?!

Re: Scoping in for loop
That is not ansi standard. If you originally wrote that using VC++ 6.0 compiler it worked because that was a non-standard c++ compiler. Microsoft has since changed their ways and made vc++ 2010 much more ansi standard compliant.

>>how can i make my compiler support or not
Your compiler IS supporting ansi standard -- it was the code you posted that was not ansi standard compliant, not the compiler.

Re: Scoping in for loop
One way to make your code correct is to declare variable i outside and above the loop, very much linke C programs do

int main()
  int i;
  for(i = 0; i < 5; i++)
      // blabla
  i = 0;
