This is incorrect in both C++ and C.  Moreso in C++, actually.  In C++,
according to the standards, a null argument list and a void argument list
are the same.  E.g.,

    int my_function();
    int my_function(void);

describe the same function.  If your compiler allows this, upgrade.  If
this is the latest version available of an actively maintained product,
issue a bug report.

In C, such null-argument lists are deprecated.  That is, it is still
possible to use them, but its use is heavily discouraged and support for
it may disappear at a later date.
