Chapter 7. Relationship To ISO/IEC 9945 POSIX

This specification includes many interfaces described in ISO POSIX (2003). Unless otherwise specified, such interfaces should behave exactly as described in that specification. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO POSIX (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 ISO POSIX (2003) into a single place. It is the long term plan of the Free Standards Group 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.
