ISO/IEC Information technology – Programming languages – C 1 This document specifies the form and establishes the interpretation of programs. Information and communication technology (ICT) standards often exist because a tech-guru has translated a vision into a technical statement. Annex D (normative) Universal character names for identifiers. Annex E ( informative) Implementation limits. Annex F (normative) IEC floating-point .

Personal tools Log in. You’ll especially need to be careful of prototyped function calls; you’ll probably need to insert explicit casts. GCC requires the freestanding environment provide memcpymemmovememset and memcmp.

Invoking GCCPrevious: But it sets up a situation in which p2 ‘s promise–that the ultimately-pointed-to value won’t be modified–cannot be kept. GCC does not support the uncorrected version. It’s a non-standard though common extension.

Any program written only in standard C and without any hardware dependent assumptions is virtually guaranteed to compile correctly on any platform with a conforming C implementation.

When you need a true compile-time constant, use a preprocessor define or perhaps an enum. On some machines particularly segmented architecturesit may be tricky and significantly less efficient [footnote] to implement.

Are you sure that the code being rejected doesn’t rely on such an extension?

I know that the code is ANSI, because gcc accepts it. This was set up in line 3, which is an assignment of a form that is disallowed, and this is exactly why line 3 is disallowed. Is program using the construct is not incorrect. It works because the Xstr macro expands its argument, and then Str stringizes it.


The Standard – C

I found it in some header files. The Standard may specify a set of allowable behaviors from which to choose, or it may impose no particular requirements. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

If either side reneges on any of its commitments, nothing is guaranteed to work. This standard is commonly referred to as C You can use a pointer-to-T for any type T where a pointer-to-const-T is expected. Parts of that treaty consist of features which the compiler implementor agrees to provide, and which the user may assume will be snsi. So what could go wrong? As of [update]”C11″ is the previous standard for the C programming iao.

11. ANSI/ISO Standard C

The need for an explicit mechanism to support parallel implementation of non-overlapping operations remains unfilled although some work is being done on the problem. See also question isl. However, freestanding implementations are comparatively rare, and if you’re using one, you probably know it.

Modern practice, however, is to use the prototyped form in both declarations and definitions. GCC does not provide the library facilities required only of hosted implementations, nor yet all the facilities required by C99 of freestanding implementations on all platforms. I’m getting strange syntax errors inside lines I’ve ifdef fed out.


Finally, the two forms are obviously not equivalent in a recursive call to main. Absi you’ve never heard of the distinction, you’re probably using a hosted implementation, and the above rules apply. See Extensions to the C Language Family. It’s perilous to think that you can tolerate undefined behavior in a program, imagining that its undefinedness can’t hurt; the undefined behavior can annsi more undefined than you think it can.

As of the GCC 4. The first two are interchangeable; they declare a pointer to a constant character you can’t change any pointed-to characters. In fact, this situation is rather common 99899 using a non-vendor-supplied compiler isk as gcc.

My compiler is complaining about valid ANSI code. Messages like these are typically emitted by pre-ANSI compilers which have been upgraded just enough to detect but not properly translate new C features which were introduced with the ANSI Standard. You can find information including C9X drafts at the web sites http: Contents 1 The Standard 1.

The international standard which defines the C programming language is available from ISOand participating countries via their national body’s publishing arrangement smany of which are available via the web for easy purchasing.
