I don't know what the best way to program is, but I usually put signatures
on all functions. I think it often helps get smarter error messages from the
So I like the warning about missing signatures. If you don't like it you can
disable it like this:
or maybe use -W instead of -Wall, apparently the warn-missing-signatures is
not comprised in the -W flag.
