As far as I can tell, the C is in a non-normative appendix, and is
probably just an extract of an early version of the V3 reference
implementation, which has been thrown in to help clarify the formal part
of the specification. If you want the formal definition of the
algorithms, you need to use the pseudo-code. If you want a self
contained C code implementation, you need to look at the reference
I must admit I had never noticed the C before, as it a long way from the
important parts of the document.
