Newbie problem: Ellipsis char and compiling errors. - Mac Programming

Hello everyone. I feel foolish. I'm muddling my way through ANSI C... I thought this would be a straightforward proposition: Declaring a function with a variable argument list. But no go. The compiler returns errors when I include an ellipsis (ASCII character 201)in the parameter list. eg. int aFunction (int, ) ; cc returns-> error: stray '1' in program. Is there another ellipsis character extant? Maybe I ought to take up plumbing... Thanks for any assistance Luke Reference "The C Programming Language" Page 155 OS 10.3.2 with gcc 3.3...

    Default Newbie problem: Ellipsis char and compiling errors.


    Hello everyone. I feel foolish. I'm muddling my way through ANSI C... I
    thought this would be a straightforward proposition: Declaring a
    function with a variable argument list. But no go. The compiler returns
    errors when I include an ellipsis (ASCII character 201)in the parameter
    list.

    eg.
    int aFunction (int, ) ;

    cc returns-> error: stray '\311' in program.

    Is there another ellipsis character extant?
    Maybe I ought to take up plumbing...

    Thanks for any assistance

    In article <230220040653276630%inter.net>, inter.net
    says... 

    Just use three fullstops (like you did after ANSI C in your original
    post...)
