    Mainly GCC.

    The ANSI C standard isn't freely available, you have to buy it from them. Though there are references online, use Google and search for example for "ansi c c99".

    I mainly use MSVC++ 6, but I also use Borland C++ on occasion.

    The ISO standard can be purchased for about $130 from ww.ansi.org. If you look really hard you can find it illegally on the net, but I don't recommend that. For a little quick reference, here is a link to the C Rationale. Be sure to take note of the warnings because this is NOT a replacement for the full standard.

    That's true if you want the paper version. The digital (PDF) version is available from the ANSI Electronic Standards Store for a meagre $18...

    There is also a draft around... n869.txt or similar which is freely available (somewhere). There are some differences in wording but IIRC nothing significant has changed between the draft and the standard.

    C++ Standard?
    I dont even think the C standard is Free...
    if you mean compiler then sure, there are a lot that are free.

    Check with ANSI
    but C++ belongs to MS so if you want their standards try
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/

    some C standards I have on my C Refrence Card
    Asking the right question is sometimes more important than knowing the answer.
    Please read the FAQ
    C Reference Card (A MUST!)
    Pointers and Memory
    The Essentials

    As far as I know, also the C++ standard is not free available for download.

    >but C++ belongs to MS

    That is incorrect, C++ is not owned by MS. Neither is C owned by a company.

    Shame that there are a few errors in the C reference card. Not bad, but a few elementary mistakes. (Case in point: C does not define the sizes of integer types as exact numbers of bits as is stated/implied on the card).

    Useful, but be wary. The Standard Is Always Right (TM).
