nvidia nvcc for compiling device code on geoforce gtx 660.  Pretty modern actually.
It "mostly" supports c99 supposedly.  It supports printf in recent versions using "...", but does not allow in device code.
It seems to recognize the va_list, va_arg, va_start, va_end, BUT not "...".
I wanted to see if I could play with lua on this device along the lines of eLua.
It looks like I am stymied by the stupid ellipsis!  It looks to be a big pain to try and hard code a max number of parameters in lua base as the ellipsis seems to be used all over.

I am attempting a workaround in that portion of the code by substituting in PTX but no dice so far.

  What compiler and system?  Because that must be one very old compiler you
are using, if it doesn't support the ANSI C vararg feature ...
