I agree with you that it’s not clear. What I’ve learnt all these years is:

-          Tcc supports as much as it can C99

-          It supports “some” C11 feature by default or using –std=c11 if there is possible name collision with C99

-          Tcc internal source code should not use C11 feature to allow boostrap form an older C standard.


For short, except what is missing (and what is missing is not documented), tcc is C99. From C99 if lacks for example complex numbers.


While I really love tcc which is now the main compiler I use to develop and test my different C projects, I wish it becomes more strict about its conforming implementation (by mean of –std=c99, -std=c11, …)


That said, I leave perfectly wo it :o))

Hi All, 

     TinyCC claims it fully supports ANSI C, does it mean the first standard from ANSI for C language:  ANSI X3 ?  which was referred as C89 from wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANSI_C

     I know TinyCC does not fully support ISO C99. 


     Please help clarify.
