    Hi All,
    In our MCU, it didn't support this declaration, it says it is using
    GCC in C89 mode and the C89 standard.

    char* test = new char[a];

    Could you please advice?

    Thank you very much!

    Best regards,

    This is not valid C. It might be C++, but since I am no C++ programmer I
    can't say that for sure.

    You are probably looking for something like this :

    #include <stdlib.h>

    char *test = malloc(a);

    If you are in a C89 or C99 standard, the you are compiling C, which
    know of no new operator.

    you should:
    a) either use malloc and free instead of new and delete, and keep on
    programming in C

    b) or change to C++, compiler option -sdt=c++98

    Whichever fits you.

    Best regards,
