I thought that people might be interested to know that the new 2001 revision
of the POSIX specification ("IEEE Std 1003.1-2001") is available online, for
free (simple registration required), at the following URL:


If you want an electronic copy (PDF format), you can purchase it for US $176
(IEEE member price; $220 otherwise) at www.ieee.org.

The 1996 edition of POSIX ("ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996") costs $224 and is
available from ANSI (www.ansi.org).
