official website for C language

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can find the official site for the C language?

Python and Java(openjdk) both have there own sites, where you can find lots of information like f.e. latest version, download links, ...
Is there an equivalent for C (not C++ smile)

thx

Re: official website for C language

Hi,
Nope, there's no official website for C. It's not like python or java who both provide softwares and stuff.
C is a standard, actually several standards which are documents that looks like that: https://web.archive.org/web/20181230041 … d_fdis.pdf That's the closest thing to an "official website" you'll find.

Carefully explaining your problem is half the solution.

Website

Re: official website for C language

Well there are the iso and ansi websites, but that's probably not what you are looking for.

To expand on the above, C is a language.  Python and Java are each languages, and interpreters.  You can't get "the language" from the website, you only get the official interpreter.  You don't need to get/download a language ... you just use it.

To further highlight this point python does have an official webpage.  But that page is all about the official python interpreter.  The python language can be used by other interpeters/compilers which have their own websites and communities (like cython, jython, etc).

So don't expect a page for a language.  Look for pages for compilers.  GCC has a website, as do clang, icc, and many others on this list.

As for download links, what do you want to download?  Again, you don't get/download a language, you just write in it.

If in contrast, you are looking for good websites to learn about programming in C, there are many of those, but that has been discussed in several previous forum threads here.

I wasn't looking for sites to learn how to program in C, just some site(s) containing general information like news, latest version, roadmap,  etc..
By 'download links' I meant the compiler indeed smile

Website

Re: official website for C language

There aren't really versions of C ... unless you mean different standards.  But there are versions of compilers which implement different sets of features.  This is even more true of roadmaps.  So it sounds like you should look into websites for the compiler(s) you're interested in.  In this case that'd most likely be GCC:

https://gcc.gnu.org/

But note that this is a compiler collection, so it includes info about some other languages too.

Re: official website for C language

Phoronix often has articles on new features and benchmarks for gcc and clang.
