X3J11 is composed of representatives from all the major C compiler developers as well as representatives from several companies that program their applications in C. In the summer of 1983, the committee met for the first time, and they have been meeting four times a year since then. 159-1089, was ratified as an ANSI standard in 1989. The ANSI standard for the C language is specified in a document entitled American National Standard for Information Systems - Programming Language C. In addition to this specification, there is a Rationale Document, which clearly explains the goals of the X3J11 Committee: The Committee's overall goal was to develop a clear, consistent, and unambiguous Standard for the C programming language which codifies the common, existing definition of C and which promotes the portability of user programs across C language environments ...

This refers to the ability to count each function call made and keep track of the amount of time spent in each function. The program is compiled with the profiling option and run with some typical input. The profiler then generates a data file that contains the call frequency and duration. A profile display program reads the data file and prints out a formatted analysis. This analysis shows immediately the functions in which the program spends most of its time. This allows you to focus your tuning efforts on the trouble spots.

If, on the other hand, the mistake had been discovered during the design stage, it would have been relatively easy to fix. The same principle holds true for software construction. This is why it's important to take your time during the design stage to ensure that you understand the problem completely. • Mistakes can have disastrous consequences. A bridge that collapses can kill people. Software that fails can also kill if, for example, the 30 2: Introduction to Software Engineering software is being used to control a nuclear power plant or an airplane.
