I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS ATTITUDE! Especially from the USENIX
"technical consultant". Can you say portable code? I knew you
I might want manuals for some system I don't own so that I can
write code which will compile and run there. I might want to
write shell scripts which will run on 4.3BSD. I might want to
write Unix utilities (which make system calls or use library
routines) which will compile and run on 4.3BSD. My only chance
at doing so is having the documentation.
If this is the kind of assistance and support you get from
USENIX, go with /usr/group. They at least are interested in
things like portability and standards.
