Should we move this to C (language), just to make it a bit more explicit? If we leave a redirect at C, we can look for articles which link to it, and fix them to come directly here. Jnc (talk) 14:59, 7 August 2017 (CEST)

I'm all for it. Tor (talk) 15:30, 7 August 2017 (CEST)
OK, done (I'll fix all the pages that link here). Jnc (talk) 15:54, 7 August 2017 (CEST)
I decided the ()'s are tacky, and moved it to C programming language. Jnc (talk) 15:47, 16 March 2018 (CET)


The page currently says "the original was K&R C". That's not true, as there were language revisions before the K&R book published in 1978. And the page even links to Typesetter C. I suggest making a more detailed list of C dialects, to the extent some milestones can be found in a continuum. I'll make a stab at it. Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 08:44, 19 August 2021 (CEST)

Look good. If I get a chance, I'll add more. Ritchie did a paper ("The Development of the C Language") which has a lot of the early history; I'll add a link to that. Jnc (talk) 16:36, 19 August 2021 (CEST)
Oh, I see, there was already kind of a link to it, buried in the text; but the link was broken. I have fixed it. Jnc (talk) 17:11, 19 August 2021 (CEST)
