Should a non-constant array be allowed in C/C++? I guess not.  See the following code.

int main()
  int c;
  scanf("%d", &c);
  int arr[c];
  int p;
  char arr2[c];
  int another;
  printf ("Terrible, diff=%d, diff=%d\n",
			 (char*)&c-(char*)&p, (char*)&p - (char*)&another);
  return 0;

Seems that compiler treats it int arr[c] as int *arr.  I don't think it should compile.
