C3 is a procedural, imperative language evolved from C, with minor changes to syntax and semantics. Among the changes are added modules, semantic macros, error handling and slices. There is no preprocessor.
The C3 name is a nod to the C2 language which it was inspired by. It shares goals and some syntax with C2, and the original author of C3 also contributed to C2's source code.
