normal C (1999) - the recent revison of the C usual helps complicated and Boolean kinds, variable size arrays, targeted floating-point programming, and new libraries for portability and internationalization.
usual C (1989)- the model of C utilized by so much of brand new programmers.
conventional C-common perform earlier than 1990, with thousands of strains of code in use each day.

The rules for determining the type are complicated, and they are different in pre-Standard C, C89, and C99. All the rules are shown in Table 2-5. If the value of an integer constant exceeds the largest integer representable in the last type within its group in Table 2- 5, then the result is undefined. In C99, an implementation may instead assign an extended integer type to these large constants, following the signedness conventions in the table. ) In C89, infonnation about the representation of integer types is provided in the header file limits.
