But but but...that's no longer necessary now that EVERYTHING is UNIX,
right? So if you have a C compiler, and it isn't cross targeting for
some embedded sysetem, then you likely have all of the UNIX primitives
and all of the standard UNIX anmd POSIX C libraries at your disposal.
Didn't a read a few years ago that Windoze had basically absorbed all of
UNIX and that it now provides al of the same stuff, via libraries?
Or maybe I misunderstood.
It certainly seemed consistant with Microsoft's well publicised "embrace,
extend, and destroy" philosophy at the time I read that.
