JTC 1/SC 22 Letter Ballot
FROM THE MEMBER BODY OF:_________________________________
On document SC 22 N3331, Letter Ballot on Free Availability of Technical
Corrigendum 1 to ISO/IEC 9899:1999 - C Language. The following resolution
was passed at the SC 22 Kona Plenary:
Resolution 01-04: Freely Available Technical Corrigendum for ISO/IEC
9899:1999 (C Language)
JTC 1/SC22 instructs its Secretariat to issue a letter ballot on the
JTC 1/SC22 endorses the request from WG14 in SC22 N3289 that Technical
Corrigendum 1 to ISO/IEC 9899:1999, Programming Language C, be made freely
available, and directs the SC22 Secretariat to immediately forward this
request to JTC 1 along with the rationale shown below.
Rationale: WG14 would like to make the Technical Corrigendum 1 for 9899:1999
publicly available on the WG14 web page. Permission was previously granted
to place the two Technical Corrigenda for 9899:1990 on the WG14 web page.
WG14 believes the C community would be well served by having the exact text
of the Technical Corrigendum 1 publicly available. Like software patches
that are publicly available (but the full software is not), this Technical
Corrigendum 1 contains only the changes, not the entire C Standard. Already,
some ISO members distribute the Technical Corrigendum free of charge. Thus,
freely distributing the Technical Corrigendum should cause little or no
This letter ballot is to be returned by each 'P' member to the SC 22
Secretariat no later than 2002-01-07.
