I guess 'C' standards have evolved or set taking into
account only general purpose computers specially those
running UNIX, DOS etc. But in embedded realm one has
to take into account the kind of resources that are
available, so should one really bother or comply with
standards which are hard to implement in a given

Perhaps it may be a good idea to have a separate set
of standards for embedded 'C'.
