    Or just check the FAQ
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Being newbie doesn't mean to have everyone else do the research and work for you.

    You'll never get anywhere if you have to have your hand held for such trivial "problems".

    posix is the standard for unix libs.
    if a function is in the posix libs then it will be on any unix like system, other than windows nt.
