I started with c in the 1980s using Mix Power C under Microsoft DOS 
3.5.  It was a number of years before I finished up with GCC under 
Linux.  Power-C was the only version of c I worked with for several 
years.  The input parameters were always inside the function brackets in 
that version, so it must have been ansi-c.  I hadn't realised it was any 
different from the K&R specs.  Interesting!
