I suppose you mean unsized. I remember this working. Maybe I'm
confusing it with zero-sized array. Hmm... gcc doesn't complain about
the following. --std=c99 seems happy too.

#include <stdio.h>

struct A {
int i;
long ar[];

struct B {
struct A a;
long ar_storage[32];

int main(void)
printf("sizeof(A)=%zd sizeof(B)=%zd\n", sizeof(struct A), sizeof(struct B));
return 0;

$ ./a.out
sizeof(A)=8 sizeof(B)=264
