Summary
  • Overwhelming support was expressed at last month's Washington, D.C. Uniforum conference for Posix, a Unix standard under development by the Institute of Electric and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). Fifty-seven North American and European firms represented at Uniforum endorsed Posix, which will now evolve under the supervision of an internationally recognized standards organization rather than a single vendor: AT &​ T. AT &​ T received strong criticism last year for its insistence that companies developing Unix software applications had to conform to SVID, AT &​ T's System V Interface Definition. Posix is in fact based largely on SVID, but also entails IEEE's notions of how a Unix 'interface definition' should appear. Posix exists now as a trial standard, with IEEE ratification expected late this year. Posix extension to cover 'shell and tools' and 'test and verification' are not expected for release until at least 1988.
