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.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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
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.
This patch adds the system calls timer_create, timer_delete, timer_settime, timer_gettime, and timer_getoverrun. The user space library adds also clock_gettime, clock_settime and clock_getres. CLOCK_REALTIME and CLOCK_LINUX_COUNTER are supported.
