Porting C

This section talks about porting existing C code for VICAR applications. It does not go into all the rules for writing portable C; see a reference book on C for that. Rather, it talks about portability in the VICAR context. It also describes how to deal with machine dependencies in VICAR code, which is useful when writing new code as well as when porting old code.
