C99(1)                  NetBSD General Commands Manual                  C99(1)

NAME
     c99 -- ANSI (1999) C compiler

SYNOPSIS
     c99 [-pedantic] [-pedantic-errors] [-D_ANSI_SOURCE] [options ...]

DESCRIPTION
     Calls the C compiler (cc) with the given options, using a C language
     environment compatible with the ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (``ISO C99'') specifi-
     cation.

     This includes inline functions, variable-length arrays, support for one-
     line comments beginning with //, disabling non-ANSI compiler features
     (such as asm, typeof, and the $ character in identifiers), and definition
     of the preprocessor symbol __STRICT_ANSI__.

     The following options are available:

     -pedantic           Issue extra warnings defined by ANSI for use of non-
                         ANSI features.

     -pedantic-errors    Issue errors instead of warnings that normally would
                         be presented by -pedantic.

     -D_ANSI_SOURCE      Tell the system header file set to use an ANSI-con-
                         formant "clean" namespace.

SEE ALSO

STANDARDS
     c99 conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'').

HISTORY
     c99 first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

BUGS
     Since c99 is a shell wrapper script to cc, compile errors are prefixed by
     "cc:".
