C99 would be a good standard to target. I regularly use pcc for compiling C code but it shouldn't need ifdefs. IMO, gcc, clang and MSVC are the big ones to target.

As preparation for making LE emit C99 or C11 code, I'm on a quest to make the generated C-code easier to analyze by tools like Cppcheck.  A part of this is to reduce the number of #IFDEFs in the generated C-code.
I've already removed several old hardware and operating system platforms from Liberty's C-runtime library in the previous weeks.

A next possible step for simplification would be to reduce the number of compilers we support. Do we really need to continue to support the old Watcom and other C-compilers?

Hence, my current request for feedback about the C-compilers for which we need or want continued support. Any feedback is welcome…
