    C89/90 Standard

    Where can I get it? Either paper or PDF.

    I checked the ANSI eStandards store but they have it listed at almost $200, which doesn't make very much sense to me since the newer C99 is only $20.

    C81 C90
    I'm not sure that's what you want since this is a C Programming forum...I can't really find what you wanted, but try going to Google and searching with a string like this:
    Code:
    filetype:pdf C90 C89
    Good luck!

    No, that's definately not what I was looking for. But thanks for trying.

    Hello,

    Here is a guide that discusses the C89 and C90 standards: Rationale for International StandardsóProgramming LanguagesóC

    I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for. Your question seemed rather vague.

    - Stack Overflow
    Segmentation Fault: I am an error in which a running program attempts to access memory not allocated to it and core dumps with a segmentation violation error. This is often caused by improper usage of pointers, attempts to access a non-existent or read-only physical memory address, re-use of memory if freed within the same scope, de-referencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a non-pointer variable as a pointer.

    That's the rationale for the standard, not the standard itself.

    I thought my question was rather simple. ANSI published a standard formally known as "ANSI X3.159" and commonly known as C89. And ISO published a standard formally known as "ISO/IEC 9899:1990" and commonly known as C90.

    I'm trying to get a copy of either one of those.

    Hmmmm:
    Try This One
    Here we are
    Probably This One
    I got these by googling:
    Code:
    filetype:pdf ISO/IEC 1990
    /* and */
    filetype:pdf ISO/IEC 9899 1990

    Kleid-0, again, I guess, thanks for trying, but the first is an extension to support the specific hardware features of digital signal processors and the second is the C99 standard.

    anonytmouse, for the time being this seems to be my best choice, though the book has gotten extremely bad reviews for the annotated portion.

    So are there any other ideas besides Schildt's annotated book?

    Also, can anyone explain why it's so expensive from ANSI?

    vim, I'm looking for the C89/90 standard, not C99.

    Ken Fitlike, same problem. That book includes C99.

    I appreciate that everyone is trying to help, but does anyone actually pay attention to the answers that they give? The document I'm looking for is something that every serious C programmer should have and anonytmouse is the only one who seems to even know what I'm talking about!

    If it is something that every serious C programmer should have then shouldn't you know what your looking for? The best you will find is in a book. A real book, not an ebook. I can't remember what it is called but I'm sure Quzah and Prelude have something on the subject, but you will most likely have to go out and spend some money.

    Have you read my posts? I know exactly what I'm looking for.

    A real book, not an ebook.
    What's wrong with an eBook? Even ANSI sells it in this format. I'm just not willing to spend $200 on it, especially when a newer version of the standard is only $20.

    That's why I gave Google searches, because I didn't know exactly what you wanted, as opposed to the pooper, and anonytmouse. And I was lazy too :(. But next time I won't make those kinds of posts, my bad :(.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*
