    POSIX implementation


    Hi guys!

    Can you help me to find implementation of POSIX function? I need to see code of these functions, and I can't find it on the Internet. Do you know where to find them? A link or something?

    Thanks!

    There's no such thing as a "POSIX function". POSIX is an operating system specification. Therefore, I have to ask you to clarify your question.

    OK, sorry for my bad English. I meant POSIX functions. POSIX is a standard, a set of certain functions, an API, and I need to see code of this functions, the way they are developed. For example, code of pthread_create function etc. I can't find it on the Internet so I've asked for link. I hope i was clear this time.

    try the man pages.
    for example, to learn the syntax of the scanf function:
    Code:
    man scanf
    all of these functions have pages in section 3 of the manual

    If you're looking for the source of the standard libc functions, then all you have to do is get the source for glibc. Alternatively, you get go to the glibc home page and look at it through the WebCVS interface.
