- Subtleties of the ANSI/ISO C standard by Robbert Krebbers, Freek Wiedijk of Radboud University Nijmegen.
we argue that the C standard does not allow Turing complete implementations, and that its evaluation semantics does not preserve typing. Finally, we claim that no strictly conforming programs exist. That is, there is no C program for which the standard can guarantee that it will not crash.
