Which is syntacticall y invalid. For similar reasons, also be careful to avoid an extraneous semicolon: #define NUMBER_ OF_ TAPE_ DRIVES 5 i /* Probably wrong. 2 Defining Macros with Parameters The more complex, functionlike macro definition declares the names of formal parameters within parentheses separated by commas: #define name ( identijier-listopt ) sequence-oj-tokensopt where identifier-list is a comma-separated list of formal parameter names. In C99, an ellipsis ( ... ; three periods) may also appear after identifier-list to indicate a vari able argument list.

This is done by making error_ handler a preprocessor macro that expands to the name eh73 . #define error_ handler eh73 extern void error handler ()1 error_ handler("nil pointer error"); Some compilers permit characters other than those specified earlier to be used in identifiers. The dollar sign ($) is often allowed in identifiers so that programs can access special non-C library functions provided by some computing systems. 9 Sec. 6 KEYWORDS The identifiers listed in Table 2-4 are keywords in Standard C and must not be used as ordinary identifiers.
