Yet another small language design exercise, that can be even be examined out of context and still yield some insight.
This time, an attempt to augment the C standard library, so as to provide safer versions of some of the functins that make C such an unsafe language (buffer overflows a case in point).
Enough to fix the core problems with the language? Hardly. A "good enough" engineering tradeoff? You be the judge.
The WG14 work item proposal may also be worth a look.
