reference types is C++ feature.
C does not have such concept.
Most probably you will have to change to use pointers.

[C400-L] Code convertion from C++ to C.






Hello!

I have to introduce my C++ program (written for V5R2) on V3R2 machine. So 
I have to change my C++ code to C. 

But when I declare functions with parameters passing by reference, the 
compiler fixes the error: "Unexpected text '&' ignored." 
It is the first error, and this is the second: 
Within a function with reference parameters (int FUNC(int &XXXX){....}) 
the compiler fixes the error: "Identifier XXXX must be declared before it 
is used." 

I can't understand, help me please.
Thanks!
