    POSIX compliance

    How can I ensure that my code is posix compliant? The way I have been approaching it is to avoid non-standard functions; is there anything else I should be concerned about if this is a requirement?
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Just familiarize yourself with the specification itself - at least for the functions you're using.

    The recently released 2008 version is here:

    Not familiar with what was added/changed in the recent version, but for now you may want to reference the prior (2004) version here:
