That made me go look for a complete list of SVR4 APIs and I wasn't able to
find them. My first job was doing device drivers for SVR3 based
mini-computers and I may still have a paper copy at some volume of some
edition of the SVID (System V Interface Definition) but back in those dark
ages, it was paper, comb-bound, and imposing. The API set appears to be
unavailable in a simple list but sco.com/developers/devspecs/ does have a
set of PDF (ok one file is Postscript). I also found "UNIX Systems
Programming for SVR4" available electronically which includes a set of
example programs in a tar file.
Might be interesting to see if the examples can be compiled for RTEMS.
Paging through the book, it looked pretty good. UNIX code never completely
goes out of date and the electronic edition was updated in 2014 so that's a
good sign it is useful.
But my going in hope was an easy list of APIs to add to the standards
tracking document. I know this is old but SVID is at least historically
The sands of time are building up so I'll quit now. :)
