View Full Version : 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 (http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc22/open/n2794/n2794.pdf)) and I was just wondering if someone could verify that it is what I'm looking for. There is some information here (http://std.dkuug.dk/JTC1/SC22/WG14/www/standards) 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 Even maybe a slightly outdated one?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.
