C Specification (6 May 2005 Draft) | C17 Standard Draft

Frequently conjoined with C++.

Numerous languages seek to supplant or replace C as the ubiquitous system language. None so far have been successful.

Instead, it reconfigures stock GCC and Clang to output a POSIX-approved polyglot format that runs natively on Linux + Mac + Windows + FreeBSD + OpenBSD + NetBSD + BIOS with the best possible performance and the tiniest footprint imaginable."
