I think you mean C89 or C90.  C99 added support for inter-mingled
statements and declarations.  This brings up an important point.  MSVC
does not support C99 and Microsoft has no stated plans to support it.
That was one reason I chose not to support MSVC in my own ripper.  I
was taking advantage of some C99 features and the trade-off of
removing them to support MSVC was not worth it, for my project.
