Compiler Error C2479

Error Message

'identifier' : 'allocate( )' is only valid for data items of static extent

The __declspec( allocate()) syntax can be used for static data only.

The following sample generates C2479:

// C2479.cpp
// compile with: /c
#pragma section("mycode", read)
static __declspec(allocate("mycode")) void DoNothing() {}   // C2479
__declspec(allocate("mycode"))  int i = 0;   // OK
