Where else?

Wherever the C compiler comes from now. Compilers in general come from Toronto--not sure whether C is there since irRational have taken over all this stuff.

Much in C changed at VRM510--see various complaints from me in the
archives. Different C compiler.

Well, as long as it compiles what we need it to . . .

That's questionable. I ran into a bunch of issues taking complex C source that compiled on 440 to 510. Gave up initially and used TGTRLS(V4R4M0).

Many includes stored in stream files.

What stream files, and where?

That's an exercise for you. Start at /QIBM.

Although the new C compiler is more consistent with C on other
platforms it has lost much when compared to the previous C compiler.

Lovely. Please tell me it still has _Ropen, _Rread, and so forth, and
packed decimal.

Yes, but it lost mapinc support--got a stupid alternative command to create an include from the file description instead.
