PL22.11 - Programming Language C

About This Committee

Task Group PL22.11 (formerly J11), Programming Language C is responsible for the technical development of the standard for C programming language. The goal, which J11 believes had been successfully achieved, is to make it possible for C program to be portable among operating systems and across a wide variety of computers. Extensive work has been done to make this standard acceptable in both the National and International arenas.

This technical committee is the U.S. TAG to ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC22/WG14.
