    > > the language.

    > > MISRA is pleased to announce that a draft of MISRA C++ is now
    > > available for public comment.
    > >

    > >
    > > The Exemplar Suite is a collection of over 200 code examples
    > > that are intended to illustrate the use of the MISRA C rules,
    > > through examples of compliant and non-compliant code. Please
    > > note that it is not a compliance or conformance test suite,

    > > testing for tools or products.
    > >
    > > Use of the Exemplar Suite is free to individual users. Any
    > > tool vendors who wish to distribute the suite with their
    > > product may do so on payment of a license fee. Please enquire
    > > for details.
    > >
    > > The Technical Clarification has been developed based on
    > > questions asked by MISRA C users on the Forum and also that
    > > have arisen during the development of the Exemplar Suite. It
    > > provides amendments to the current version of MISRA C and is
    > > designed to be used in conjunction with a copy of MISRA-C:2004.
