    C99 support?

    How can I tell if the compiler supports the C99 standard...
    Also, where can I find a complete guide to the C99 standard, all the changes, and extra functions and fixes?

    Btw, is the C99 only applies to C, and not C++ ?


    Thank you.

    Try declaring a long long variable. No, seriously, check the documentation or website.

    C99 is a C standard, not C++.

    Most books cover C99 now. Programming in C is one.

    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.*
