AFAIK GCC is one of the most ANSI-compliant C compilers out there. If you
really want ANSI nitpicking compliance, try:

 gcc -Wall -pedantic -ansi 

As for your problem, why not just declare your counter variable as an
unsigned char? and oh yes, chars need not be byte values. I think 16-bit
chars are getting popular (the UNICODE set). Under NT chars are UNICODE I
think.
