It works fine on C.  Probably some very minor thing is needed to make it
recongize the C code (e.g. standard header tweak or something of that nature).
If you mail me your code, I will create a C project and mail the whole ball of
wax back to you.  If you compile in gcc, I doubt that you can debug effectivly
under the VC++ IDE (though I have not tried it -- I debug gcc under ddd and VC++
stuff under visual studio).

One misplaced semicolon can cause all sorts of funny cascading errors in C.

Some compilers will compile this bug without complaint:

enum tagStuff {
six, // The final comma is a BUG

without complaint while others will throw a cross-eyed hissy fit (which is fully
within their right).
