Any big differences between final draft before C89 and actual C89 standard?

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there are any meaningful differences between the
    final pre-C89 draft (http://dev.unicals.com/papers/c89-draft.html) and
    the actual C89 standard?

    For a non-implementor, are there any traps/pitfalls in using the final
    draft?
    It's a shame that the C99 standard and the changes that are coming up
    ("safe" library functions) are implemented in different degrees by
    different compilers (with no convergence in sight). Just trying to find
    a "subset" of all of them, and I'm guessing the preC89 draft would be a
    suitable subset.

    Thanking everyone in advance.

    Yes, there are.

    Is it too much to ask for an occasional token gesture of appreciation?!
