Hi Kalyan,

AFAIK, the C backend is not actively maintained anymore. I never used
it, but it's quite likely that it's not implementing 100% of any
standard (ISOC or C99).

If you search the archives you'll see the number of people that ask
for the same thing, but not many are willing to actively support it.
Until that happens, you're stuck with what's implemented already.
