CloudFlare suffered a massive security issue affecting all of its customers, including Rosetta Code. All passwords not changed since February 19th 2017 have been expired, and session cookie longevity will be reduced until late March.--Michael Mol (talk) 05:15, 25 February 2017 (UTC)


From Rosetta Code
(Redirected from POSIX)
This is an example of a library. You may see a list of other libraries used on Rosetta Code at Category:Solutions by Library.
POSIX or "Portable Operating System Interface" is a standard for systems that resemble Unix. The current version, POSIX.1-2008, is a project of both the IEEE and the Open Group. More information is at POSIX at Wikipedia.
  • POSIX defines an API for C programs, with functions such as fork(), opendir(), regcomp(), wait() and unlink().
  • POSIX also defines commands such as awk, bc, grep, ls, m4, rm, sed and sh.

The pages in this category have examples marked {{libheader|POSIX}}. These examples require some of the POSIX functions; a C or C++ example that calls fork() would be in this category. Some languages, like Ada or Perl, have a POSIX library.

POSIX threads go in Category:pthread.
