I'm not sure this can be free software.

The K&R manual is non-free (copyright Addison-Wesley I think), and
answers to exercices will be difficult to implement without mentioning
the questions, and some answers may require modifying non-free code
from the questions.

We're likely to run into a lawsuit here, because there already exist a
non-free, commercial book with the answers to the K&R manual,
published by the same editor (in France, at least -

Maybe it would be more useful to create a whole new set of exercices,
with both questions and answers placed under a free license.

Maybe a free implementation of the exercices answers is possible, but
this needs to be done carefully on we need to discuss it with
Athanasios Kasampalis beforehand.
