C Standard Library reference

P: n/a

What are some recommended references for the C Standard Library portion of
C++? Buying the Standard itself is impractical now that only the hardcopy
version is available...

The C++ standard is available in the UK in book form at a reasonable price:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0470846747

I hope it will be available in the USA also before too long.

Am I to understand that the 2003 version of the C++ Standard (i.e. that
which includes TC 1) also includes the full definition of the C Standard
Library (note: C, not C++) rather than just referencing it in the 1989 C
Standard (as the 1998 C++ Standard does)?

What makes you think that only the hard copy version is available?
Perhaps that's true of the older C standard, admittedly the one on
which the C++ standard is based, but the current 1999 C standard is
still available in PDF format for $18.00US:

http://webstore.ansi.org/ansidocstor...EC+9899%2D1999

The C standard does not specifically identify in the text which
headers and functions are new for the 1999 standard, but the C++
standard does specifically identify which C library headers and
functions are incorporated in C++.

Other than the addition of the restrict keyword to some prototypes,
and some additional conversion specifiers for *printf and *scanf, the
C99 standard's definitions of the corresponding library functions
should be accurate for standard C++.

Still, if you want the older C standard, it appears that BSI sells it
for 30.00 UK (sorry, don't have a pound symbol in this font). See

Watch out for URL wrap.
