Anyone knows what the differences between POSIX and EL/IX are?
It seems to me that a lot if not all POSIX functions are in EL/IX too?

EL/IX is a standard for embedded linux systems. Linux systems are based on POSIX, which explains the similarity, but that doesn't make it the same. POSIX is a universal standard for Unix-like (Linux, BSD etc.) systems.
