Yes it will. I'm talking utter nonsense.

(I blame hay fever drug daze.)

I'm wondering if your compiler doesn't recognise `restrict', but that's
unlikely; even egcs recognises it. I expect some unexpected macro
expansions have chewed this code into something quite unexpected: what
does the preprocessor output for this bit of stdio.h in the context of
that file look like?

`What happened?'
                 `Nick shipped buggy code!'
                                             `Oh, no dinner for him...'
