For that they have g++. The idea of having TinyCC and TinyC++ with those
basic extensions to the C programming language, along with loosening
some syntax restrictions (such as requiring "struct") makes coding
simple things much easier.  And there's not necessarily any need for
iostream when the old functions are there, such as f/s/printf, etc.

I didn't particularly think that you wanted to implement it.  But by
your quick response I assumed you were one of the governing authorities
providing direction.

I don't know.  I don't have AMD64 machine right now.  Have several CPUs
lying around, but no motherboard.  I look to be getting one here in
January and will surely test it out at some point.

TinyCC in a scripting language, with TinyC++ providing encapsulation is
one of the greatest benefits I see.

Thanks for the quick response.
