>>All I find...
What you find has absolutely nothing to do with what the standard says.
Here's how one would continue this argument:
- Buy a copy of the standard.
- Read it.
- Assert your interpretations of the standard that support your argument.
Otherwise, read the links provided in this thread and drawn your own conclusions. Here's mine: "If you don't care about portability or adhering to the standard, then do whatever works".
