Programming in ANSI is the best way to get portability. I agree with
Otto. Invent the wheel over and over is a waste that could be put to
some good use. The only place that i believe that invent the wheel is
good is when you are learning. After that point, using ANSI functions,
is the best way to program correctly, securely and portable.
