Over the years I mostly programmed in C++ on POSIX systems, namely linux. But then, quite suddenly I became allergic to C++, to its useless bloat, crude syntax and its tendency to send apples three times around the earth just to be delivered to your neighbor.

I now mostly program in C, C99 to be precise, starting with C11, and occasionally in perl when I just need to do some scripting.

A first result of that is P99 a set of preprocessor macros for C99. People will say that P99 is a useless bloat, has crude syntax and has tendency to send apples once around the earth just to be delivered to your neighbor. But if it is already two orbits that we gain, it is worth it, isn't it?

As an additional feature, on some platforms P99 now also emulates a lot of C11, atomics, threads, type generics, be surprised!
