The syntax I'm talking about is the one involving the declarator,
i.e., in the above the writing the if statement like this:

     if (char* pos = strchr (cmd1, *cmd))

rather than like this:

     char* pos = strchr (cmd1, *cmd);
     if (pos)

I thought we had discussed this but I might be thinking of the
for loop scoping discussion (starting
I'm pretty sure there are older compilers that don't support the
more concise form so I think we should continue to avoid relying
on it or decide that the syntax will be required in order to
support stdcxx. I don't think we ever came to a decision on the
for loop question either. I think it would make sense to put
together a list of modern language features currently treated
by stdcxx as optional (member templates, partial specialization,
etc.) that we will agree to assume robust support for from the
compiler. But I want that to be a conscious decision, not
something we allow to creep in without everyone's full
understanding of the implications.

Got it!

I see. Thanks.
