             Bug #: 11739
           Summary: Have a fixit for |const char[] kFoo = "foo";| et al
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: nicolasweber at gmx.de
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

After writing a bunch of Java, I sometimes write something like:

    const char[] kFoo = "foo"

Clang and gcc both point out that this is wrong:

test.c:1:11: error: expected identifier or '('
const char[] kFoo = "foo";
1 error generated.

This is a decent warning, but it would be fantastic if clang could also say
"This isn't Java: put [] behind kFoo instead" (probably without the "This isn't
java" part :-) ).
