How to fix 'for' loop initial declarations are only allowed in C99 mode in Eclipse

For loop problem
Once again, programming in C using Eclipse in Linux is great, however when using "for" loops I get this error:
'for' loop initial declarations are only allowed in C99 mode
After a little bit of research, in Eclipse, go to Project > Properties > C/C++ Build > Settings > GCC C Compiler > Miscellaneous > add "-std=c99" to the "Linker Flags" text field.
