If it were free, what would be the point of offering it for sale? If it
is important to you, buy a copy.

Please don't quote signatures, (i.e. the block of text after the '-- '
marker), unless you're specifically commenting on them.

No. The actual Standard is available only by purchase. However there's
a working draft document, that has practically everything the
purchased copy has, in addition to inclusion of some Technical
Corrigenda and other corrections. It's made freely available for
download and personal use by WG14 at:

<http://www.open-std.org/JTC1/SC22/WG14/www/docs/n1124.pdf>

There's also a Rationale document:

A text version of the last draft of C99 is available at:

<http://cbfalconer.home.att.net/download/>

in bz2 compressed format. There are (mostly insignificant)
differences from the actual final standard. This one is suitable
for quoting, searching, etc.

Also consider the following document:
http://www.open-std.org/JTC1/SC22/WG...docs/n1124.pdf

which is the C99 text, plus some subsequent corrigenda. I have found
it
to be more reliable thatn N869, which has some significant differences
to C99.

But it's not text, which is a significant impediment to searching,
processing, quoting, etc. with normal text handling software.

Different people have different preferences. I have a copy of
n1124.pdf on my laptop, and I view it with Acrobat Reader; I haven't
had any problems searching it, and few problems copy-and-pasting from
it. Of course, the fact that I have a reasonably fast laptop with a
large display (1600x1200 pixels) makes that easier than it might be
for some.

I've also been able to export n1124.pdf to a plain text file, though
the formatting isn't as nice as n869.txt.

But neither n869.txt nor n1124.txt shows italics, which can be an
important consideration.

We had this discussion before. Being PDF format is /not/ an impediment
of any sort. /You/ may prefer to grep a text doc, but I find crtl-F
works well for me, while copy-paste beats vi hands down...

The equations are challenging to interpret, too, which can also be an
important consideration.

Is ctrl-f and <mouse selection>+ctrl-[c|x|v] considered normal
text handling software? :-))
(I'm currently under Vista and it seems that the only program
that works the same is vim - at least it hasn't crashed yet :-D).

And on more advanced platforms, cmd-F works similarly. :-)
