A large part of the C standard is implementation defined(see acqq's post here: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4131828 ), so the result could be different on multiple compilers, not a bug, and STILL completely within spec.




If I recall correctly, they only generated programs that had well-specified behavior. Not just legal, but specified.
