if (n00b); warning

I wasted a non-trivial amount of time yesterday debugging code in which I’d accidentally written:

if (...);
  {
    ...
  }

Is there any situation where if (foo); can achieve something which just foo; couldn’t? Could the compiler not warn about a conditional that contained no code?

Aggravating lapses in competence aside, I’ve realised I’ve not blogged for months, so over the next few days I’m going to try and write a little about what I’ve been working on recently.
