Public Open System Infrastructure for uniX, a integrated Application Server and Business Server to provide a enterprise e-business platform.
(n.) A standard of definition of the interface to the UNIX operating system.
The portable operating system interface specification defined by the US Government, in conjunction with XPG. There are multiple levels of non-compliance accepted, as with most standards with a lot of powerful vendors itching to be non-standard against the better interests of the entire community.
Name of Standard for a Portable Unix, which is IEEE's family of 1003.x standards. Hence POSIX also is a family of standards. All the POSIX standards are also incorporated in ISO/IEC 9945-x standards.
A Unix-based standard developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' Posix committee.
POrtable Systems Interface, complying with UNIX standards 1003.1 and 1003.2 from IEEE.
POSIX is not an OS, but a standard for how Unix-like OSes should behave at various levels. As an effort to counter the balkanization of Unix from vendor to vendor, POSIX defines the ways in which Unix-like OSes should expose their interfaces, from the kernel up to program- and shell-argument level.
POSIX is also known as IEEE standard 1003.1. It is yet another flavor of UNIX. Linux systems are POSIX compliant.
refers to the various standards being developed by the "Technical Committee on Operating Systems and Application Environments of the IEEE Computer Society" under standard P1003. PBS conforms to the POSIX Batch Queuing Extensions standard, POSIX 1003.2d.
The collection of standardised services and application programming interfaces for Unix
Portable Operating System Interface on Unix. An attempt to define a Unix standard.
Portable Operating System Interface (for Computer Environments)
A somewhat mangled abbreviation for ortable perating ystem nterface. A set of standards that grew out of the UNIX operating system.
The name for a series of standards being developed by the IEEE that specify a Portable Operating System interface. The ``IX'' denotes the Unix heritage of these standards. The main standard of interest for awk users is P1003.2, the Command Language and Utilities standard.
An IEEE/ISO standard. The term is an acronym (of sorts) for Portable Operating System Interface -- the "X" alludes to "UNIX", on which the interface is based.
See Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX).
an acronym defined as â€œa portable operating system interface based on UNIX,â€ refers to a collection of international standards for UNIX-style operating system interfaces. In the mid-to-late 1980â€™s, government agencies began specifying POSIX as a procurement standard for government computing contracts.
A set of operating system interface standards based on UNIX. The standards were developed so that programs could be written more easily that would work...
POSIX is the collective name of a family of related standards specified by the IEEE to define the application program interface for software designed to run on variants of the Unix OS. They are formally designated as IEEE 1003 and the international standard name is ISO/IEC 9945. The standards emerged from a project, begun circa 1985. The term POSIX was suggested by Richard Stallman in response to an IEEE request for a memorable name. It is a near acronym for Portable Operating System Interface, with the X signifying the Unix heritage of the API.
Portable Operating System Environment A body making decisions on Unix standards.
Portable Operating System for UNIX(TM). A standard that defines the language interface between the UNIX operating system and application programs through a minimal set of supported functions.
An "open" computer operating system that is similar to UNIX.
Portable Operating System Interface. A set of standards that address various areas of operating system technology. The POSIX standards describe functions of an operating system interface that applications use to become "POSIX-compliant." The main point of POSIX is to facilitate software portability and minimize porting costs.
refers to the various standards being developed by the "Technical Committee on Operating Systems and Application Environments of the IEEE Computer Society" under standard P1003. There are a number of subcommittees under POSIX, those of interest to this project are

Portable Operating System Interface - OS based on UNIX.
Portable Operating System Interface: Operating system based on UNIX.
Acronym for "Portable Operating System Interface for UNIX"] A set of standards that define the interface between computer applications and POSIX-compliant operating systems. POSIX-compliance UNIX systems allow developers to more easily port programs to run on the many flavors of UNIX, LINUX and even Windows NT.
This standard defines a C programming language interface to an operating system environment. This standard is used by computing professionals involved in system and application software development and implementation.
POSIX or "Portable Operating System Interface for uniX" is the collective name of a family of related standards specified by the IEEE to define the application programming interface (API) for software compatible with variants of the Unix operating system. Originally, the name stood for IEEE Std 1003.1-1988, which as the name suggests, was released in 1988. The family of POSIX standards is formally designated as IEEE 1003 and the international standard name is ISO/IEC 9945.
