We are fixing the crash in the Spring Update of VS 2013 and will be emitting a proper error. However, the code as provided will still not compile. According to 6.8.5 of the C standard, "The declaration part of a for statement shall only declare identifiers for objects having storage class auto or register." Secondly, we do not support _Complex types at all in VS 2013.

Try this main.c program:

int main(void){
for( extern float _Complex v52 = 0;;){break;};
return 0;
