Chapter 6. Relationship To ISO/IEC 9945 POSIX

This specification includes many interfaces described in POSIX 1003.1-2001 (ISO/IEC 9945-2003). Unless otherwise specified, such interfaces should behave exactly as described in that specification. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the POSIX 1003.1-2001 (ISO/IEC 9945-2003) standard is unintentional, except as explicitly noted otherwise.

Note: In addition to the differences noted inline in this specification, PDTR 24715 has extracted the differences between this specification and POSIX 1003.1-2001 (ISO/IEC 9945-2003) into a single place. It is the long term plan of the Linux Foundation to converge the LSB Core Specification with ISO/IEC 9945 POSIX.

The LSB Specification Authority is responsible for deciding the meaning of conformance to normative referenced standards in the LSB context. Problem Reports regarding underlying or referenced standards in any other context will be referred to the relevant maintenance body for that standard.
