 |You'll need to use a convention to avoid that, such as putting in one space:
 |
 |MyDebug(" ");
 |
 |Or using a different function:
 |
 |MyDebugEmpty();
...

In the absense of a compiler fix, that's what I'd planned to do, since it's
much preferable to not having any argument type checking.

Would be helpful if there was a way to tell gcc to follow printf()
standards precisely though.  -Werror and __attribute__ format are too
valuable to do without.

Thanks,

Randall
