        What's ANSI C++? Do you mean ISO C++? <g>

        Of course you are right. The same applies to


but I want these 'extensions'. In particular, I want


because it is necessary for high performance multiple
precision arithmetic. Note that intXX_t is only optional
in C99.

Felix doesn't support conditional compilation (at least at present),
and I would like to produce a demo that works on all systems:
I don't mind requiring C99 support as required above:
that is, "ISO C++ plus C99 inttypes.h plus 8,16,32,64 bit
architecture". I may fix this using modules, but I don't
have module support yet, and I'm not sure that it
isn't an unreasonable requirement for a new PL.
