Nice survey, thanks!
I learned C using the Norcroft C compiler on early Acorn / ARM machines
where char was unsigned. That is still the case, though ARM have switched
from Norcroft to clang.
(And I started learning about unix from reading articles about RISC iX,
Acorn's 4.3BSD port to the Archimedes.)

Tyne, Dogger: Variable 3 or 4, becoming west or southwest 5 to 7, perhaps gale
8 later in north. Slight, becoming moderate. Occasional rain later. Good,
