    C/C++ standard

    I know that the current standard is C99, and I know that you can buy it from ANSI, but... buying things? yuck.

    I think I may have found the current C standard online (here) and I was just wondering if someone could verify that it is what I'm looking for. There is some information here but I'm really not sure exactly what I'm trying to find and it isn't very clear on these sites.

    Also, does anyone know where I can get a free copy of the C99 C++ standard? Even maybe a slightly outdated one? (There are updates to it, right?) I saw that C89 is available from Strousoup's (sp, lol) site, and I might read that if I can't get C99, but I'd rather have something more current if possible. :-/

    Here's a link to the final draft of the C++ standard, which is referred to as C98 I believe. C99 is for C, as was C89.

    blackrat364: The document you found is not the ANSI C standard, but I wonder if there are very big differences between FCD 9899, which you have found and ISO/IEC 9899:1999 which is the current standard.
