I typically use K&R C, since it is more portable. There are
still many machines without ANSI compilers which will probably never
be upgraded. I have a uVAX 3000 running ULTRIX 4.1 for example. This
machine probably won't get upgrade any time soon unless NetBSD can
support it reliably. I've tried to put gcc on it, but the compile
failed, and I don't have time to try to fix it.
