1 This International Standard specifies the form and establishes the interpretation of programs written in the C programming language.1)
2 It specifies
3 the representation of C programs;
4 the syntax and constraints of the C language;
5 the semantic rules for interpreting C programs;
6 the representation of input data to be processed by C programs;
7 the representation of output data produced by C programs;
8 the restrictions and limits imposed by a conforming implementation of C.
9 This International Standard does not specify
10 the mechanism by which C programs are transformed for use by a data-processing system;
11 the mechanism by which C programs are invoked for use by a data-processing system;
12 the mechanism by which input data are transformed for use by a C program;
13 the mechanism by which output data are transformed after being produced by a C program;
14 1) This International Standard is designed to promote the portability of C programs among a variety of data-processing systems.
15 It is intended for use by implementors and programmers.
16 the size or complexity of a program and its data that will exceed the capacity of any specific data-processing system or the capacity of a particular processor;
17 all minimal requirements of a data-processing system that is capable of supporting a conforming implementation.
