Implementation-Defined Behavior


For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

ANSI X3.159-1989, American National Standard for Information SystemsProgramming LanguageC, contains a section called "Portability Issues." The ANSI section lists areas of the C language that ANSI leaves open to each particular implementation. This section describes how Microsoft C handles these implementation-defined areas of the C language.

This section follows the same order as the ANSI section. Each item covered includes references to the ANSI that explains the implementation-defined behavior.
