     Please help clarify.

At the time that line in the documentation was written Fabrice meant really ANSI C, aka C89 aka ISO C90.

But as you know TCC also supports some C99 and some C11 and many GNU C (and some MS) extensions. I would say we strive for conformance as long as it doesn't stand in the way of other goals like size and compilation speed.
