Shore Programmer's Manual - 3 November 94


unixcompat \- UNIX compatibility methods


#include <ShoreApp.h>
class Shore;


Class Shore contains several methods that mimic UNIX system calls and library routines. This set of calls is not a complete set of file-system-related calls. For example, there are no counterparts to open(2), close(2), read(2), write(2), or lseek(2). The methods that are included are primarily those that manipulate directories. Note, however, that there is no counterpart to getdirentries(2). Application programs that need to scan the contents of a directory can use the DirScan class for this purpose.

In future releases of Shore, we hope to include a UNIX compatibility library that exports the same interface as does the file system subset of the UNIX system call suite.


This manual page applies to Version 0.1 of theShore software.


The Shore project is sponsored by the Advanced Research Project Agency, ARPA order number 018 (formerly 8230), monitored by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory under contract DAAB07-91-C-Q518.
