Watch this space! -They probably will be POSIX. +They shall implement commands and utilities from POSIX.1-2017, with +almost no extensions to the standard (check the PROGRESS file). They are written +using only the standard POSIX.1-2008 C library (-D_XOPEN_SOURCE=700). + +Each utility is a single self-contained file, relying on no internal libraries. The software found in this repository has been dedicated to the public domain. See UNLICENSE for more details. +Building +-------- + +The requirements are: + +* Any C99 compiler +* Any POSIX.1-2008 standard C library +* Any POSIX make implementation (optional; you can compile manually) + +Just type `make`, and the binaries shall be compiled into the bin/ directory. + Contributing ------------
