    226226The C programming language is a foundational technology for modern computing with millions of lines of code implementing everything from hobby projects to commercial operating-systems.
    227227This installation base and the programmers producing it represent a massive software-engineering investment spanning decades and likely to continue for decades more.
    228 The TIOBE~\cite{TIOBE} ranks the top 5 most \emph{popular} programming languages as: Java 15\%, \Textbf{C 12\%}, \Textbf{\CC 5.5\%}, Python 5\%, \Csharp 4.5\% = 42\%, where the next 50 languages are less than 4\% each with a long tail.

    250250(4) Extensions introduced by \CFA must be translated in the most efficient way possible.
    251251These goals ensure existing C code-bases can be converted to \CFA incrementally with minimal effort, and C programmers can productively generate \CFA code without training beyond the features being used.
    252 \CC is used similarly, but has the disadvantages of multiple legacy design-choices that cannot be updated and active divergence of the language model from C, requiring significant effort and training to incrementally add \CC to a C-based project.

    254254All languages features discussed in this paper are working, except some advanced exception-handling features.

    11001100The @if@ expression allows declarations, similar to @for@ declaration expression:

    11111111
    11121112There are a number of deficiencies with the C @switch@ statements: enumerating @case@ lists, placement of @case@ clauses, scope of the switch body, and fall through between case clauses.

    12661266
    12671267While C provides @continue@ and @break@ statements for altering control flow, both are restricted to one level of nesting for a particular control structure.
