    Post What are all the reserved names in C?

    What are all the reserved names in C? C89, C99, whatever you know. These are the ones I know:

    Code:
    an underscore followed by an uppercase letter: Reserved by the implementation
    "is" followed by lowercase letter: Reserved for future use (ie, <ctype.h>).
    I'm just wondering, because I don't know them all, I'm sure, and I should.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Thank you.

    Another question, unrelated: How do you put the code tags in your signature?

    Yours? Hah. I'm the one who started that. (IIRC, getting around the filter...)

    Yeah, OK, so I'm a thief... But it was someone else I copied though. Then there's & # 91;code& # 93;
