BTW (this has probably been mentioned before) n1124 is a newer
freely-available draft, which is closer to the C99 final than n869
(which is what I assume your HTML version is based on).  The downside
is that n1124 only comes in PDF format.  I still go to n869 first
myself since I can search/browse it in a text editor.

Aside: OED documents "gonna" but lists it as a US colloquialism.
Dates to 1913, similar to "ganna" and "gaunna" which date to 1806.

Another problem with lexx and yacc is that it's nearly impossible to
get a clean build from their output if you have warnings enabled.  My
latest workaround was to write my own generator using parsing
expression grammers, which spits out threadsafe recursive descent
