Details

This document has been prepared by The Open Group Base Working Group. Four API sets have been developed and submitted to the Austin Group as input to the revision of the Base Specifications, Issue 6. This first set includes interfaces drawn from glibc and other open source operating systems. These interfaces can be broadly grouped into the following categories:

  • Directory handling: alphasort(), dirfd(), and scandir()
  • Signal handling: psignal() and psiginfo()
  • Standard I/O extensions: dprintf(), fmemopen(), getdelim(), getline(), open_memstream(), and open_wmemstream()
  • Temporary files: mkdtemp()
  • String handling: stpcpy(), stpncpy(), strndup(), strnlen(), strsignal(), mbsnrtowcs(), wcpcpy(), wcpncpy(), wcscasecmp(), wcsdup(), wcsnlen(), and wcsnrtombs()
