SUMMARY

UNIX?, POSIX, and Open Systems discusses issues that affect many standards and profiles including networking; conformance testing; independence from a single programming language; and internationalization across human languages, codesets, and cultural conventions. Standards facilitate application portability, user portability, and interoperability among different versions of UNIX and other open systems. This is a how-to book for understanding, implementing, and using standards, explaining how standards are produced, and how to affect them. Highlights Include: Descriptions of the major standards bodies, industry consortia, and user groups that produce specifications and standards, and of how different groups may be faster, broader, or better able to achieve a consensus in standardization Discussions of POSIX standards and other specific standards related to the historical UNIX operating system Emphasis on the role of networking in open systems and standards Extensive coverage of profiles and their uses in implementing, selling, and buying computer software and hardware 0201527723B04062001Quarterman, John S. is the author of 'UNIX, POSIX, and Open Systems: The Open Standards Puzzle' with ISBN 9780201527728 and ISBN 0201527723.
