    Single Unix Specification/POSIX.1


    for anyone that is curious, here is a link to the SUSv3/POSIX specifications... i have the HTML on my HDD and find it useful when i need to know what function prototypes are in what headers... also, it's very informative as to how a standards-compliant *nix system works internally...

    I can't deny that. The SUS is certainly a good thing to have.
