Personally I interpret that as meaning it's expecting an ; where it found an =, although my C-fu is not strong enough to know if an extern declaration and an assignment are allowed in one statement, I only have my intuition saying that's naughty. Maybe if the error said "';' expected, '=' found" would be nicer. I know I frequently get sad when a code mangler says "error on line x", and that line has several hairy bits on it.

Re: #tcc, I don't know of a better one, but I'll happily join.

I get an error message of:

wrong2.c:4: ';' expected

when there clearly is a ';'. The code is, of course, incorrect, and so
tcc correctly should not compile it, but the error itself is a bit

The code is attached (5 lines).

P.S. - Is there an IRC channel where alot of people who use tcc or tcc
developers hang out? I tried #tcc on freenode but nobody seems to be
