Call for examples for POSIX man pages

Submitted-by: andrew@u1.abs.net (Andrew Josey)


Many of the man pages in the POSIX.1 standard do not have any
informative examples .  We're looking for volunteers to contribute
additional examples.

Criteria is they should be conforming extracts of code.  and
illustrative of key concepts.  They do not have to be complete
working program but should be working extracts with error checking.

Lists of the functions and utilities currently with no examples are at:
  http://www.opengroup.org/~ajosey/funcs-with-no-examples.txt
  http://www.opengroup.org/~ajosey/utils-with-no-examples.txt

A Template follows:
------------------

One line Summary Title, for example: Initializing a String

One or more paragraphs giving an overview of what the example
does: The following example .....

<code sample>

/* code can contain inline comments */

  ....

int sample_data;


To submit an example please complete the defect form at
  http://www.opengroup.org/austin/defectform.html

(do not worry about page and line numbers so long as you
give the interface name)
