I agree that compiler should generate inline code for alloca, but isn't
"__alloca" missing even for gcc?
Does this mean that gcc should compile this without any problems as it
I think that gcc can only compile it if a "#define __alloca __builtin_alloca"
is added. At the moment, only "alloca" is defined this way.
Thanks a lot,
