expected '(' to follow 'identifier'

The function identifier is used in a context that requires trailing parentheses.

This error can be caused by omitting an equal sign (=) on a complex initialization.

The following sample generates C2054:

// C2054.c  
int array1[] { 1, 2, 3 };   // C2054, missing =  

Possible resolution:

// C2054b.c  
int main() {  
   int array2[] = { 1, 2, 3 };  
}
