    All standard C functions work on all platforms that support C.
    OS's like Linux & Windows also provide a ton of platform specific functions which may or may not (usually not) be supported on other platforms.

    At the same time, most functionality available in either of those OS's is usually found SOMEWHERE in the other - but it is sometimes a bit tricky to find what it's called and how to make it work exactly the same thing (particularly if the functionality is directly connected with some OS-internal behaviour).
