Something that I learned today and that may be interesting to people here:
IEEE has also begun work on IEEE P1003.27™, "Standard for Information Technology -
POSIX® C++ Language Interfaces - Binding for System Application Program Interface
(API)." This standard will provide a single, recommended method to allow portable
C++ applications to make use of the POSIX standard interfaces, which will help to
discourage the currently diverging practices in the industry which lead to poor
design choices, inefficiencies, and incompatibilities.
