    how about c99 support ?

  • User profile image

    As far as I can tell the C-Language that Microsoft supports is not fully ANSI-C 1999 compliant.  The best I can tell from the corporate documentation is that the C compiler is compliant up to ANSI-C 1995, but that is only my take from a brief Bing search of the MSDN sites and Microsoft.com sites.


    Even gcc is only compliant to the ANSI-C 95 level as far as I can tell, let me know otherwise.

    Just attempted a similar review of the GNU site and could not determine if GNU/GCC really isn't at the ANSI-99 level, couldn't determine it with a simple search of the site. 


    It appears that there are non-free tools that do pure ANSI-C 99 development, and make it clear that they do.  As to the no-cost stuff for Microsoft or GNU, there appears to be no firm answer that I can come up with in just a few minutes. 


    If anyone can determine the exact level of either GNU or Microsoft (I am pretty sure it's 1995), please add to this comment tree.

    GCC is ANSI C95 compliant with the options -std=iso9899:199409 and -pedantic. Detailed info is over here.

    However it's not fully ANSI C99 compliant yet.
    You can check the status on GNU web site over here

    AFAIK, MSVC is a similar case. No detailed info though..
