Hi woigl,

Variadic macros were added to C standard in ISO 1999 .. Prior to that they were supported as compiler specific extensions to C.
gcc had supported variadic macros for long ... quite some time before ISO99. However, at that time, VC++ did not have support for variadic macros ...

Newer version do support variadic macros ... I just tried compling an example with VS2005 and it compiled fine.

Cheers!
