    Oh for crying out loud.... this doesn't need 15 messages...

    You've already been given several good recommendations... but I'll make it real simple for you...


    Click this link ---> FREE ISO C-99 Compiler and IDE

    When you get it installed, immediately open the help file and start reading.

    So long as your K&R has got the big red "ANSI-C" rubber stamp logo on the front of it, it's an excellent book to have.

    IIRC, the only difference between ANSI-C89 and ISO-C90 is the front cover information, and perhaps page numbering.

    Also, there is no central certification lab which can officially say "this is an ANSI/ISO C compiler". Mostly you have to take their word for it, perhaps backed up by their tests and bug reports (a lot easier to do with open source compilers).

    Also, everything has bugs (even the standards)
    Normative Changes to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 in Technical Corrigendum 1
    ISO C Technical Corrigendum 2
    C89/C90 evolved a little bit after the initial publication.
    Likewise, C99 came and went (and now there is C1X)

    And even in K&R-II
    Errata for The C Programming Language, Second Edition

    Any compiler mentioned here should do just fine.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Did you not know that MAC OS-X comes with the GCC compiler?
    It's probably sitting on your hard drive, right now...

    The GNU Compiler Collection on Mac OS X Development

    Also... you stand a much better chance of getting good answers around here if you start a new thread. Especially since your question is different than the OP's question...
