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 -ansiC specification.

       This includes proper handling of trigraphs, disabling non-ANSI compiler features (such  as
       asm  ,  typeof  ,  and the $ character in identifiers), and definition of the preprocessor
       symbol __STRICT_ANSI__ .

       The   status    of    C99    features    implemented    in    GCC    is    described    at
       http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-8/c99status.html

SEE ALSO

       cc(1) for a description of all options.

HISTORY

       Appeared in NetBSD 1.4 .

BUGS

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