Now that info really helps me. Thanks. In fact I only found this when
someone send me a bug report for my embedded SQL preprocessor ECPG. I
couldn't figure out what went wrong in my program and now it seems that the
embedded SQL file does use that feature and the precompiler does not know it
at all. Geez, I'm afraid the precompiler will never learn this unless I
write a complete C parser.
