;; @description Interface to various UNIX libc functions
;; @version 0.1 alpha - mostly untested
;; @version 0.2 alpha - eliminated getpid and getppid, included in 'sys-info'
;; @version 0.3 alpha - added diferent libc.so library path for UBUNTU 9.04
;; @version 0.4 alpha - take care of overwrite protection of imports in ffilib versions
;; @version 0.5 alpha - precautions for multiple load of module because of overwritten symbols
;; @version 0.6 alpha - libc library path for Linux UBUNTU
;; @version 0.71 alpha - libc library path for several OS

;; <h2>UNIX libc function support</h2>
;; To use this module include the following line at the beginning of
;; the program file:
;; <pre>
;; (load "/usr/share/newlisp/modules/unix.lsp")
;; ; or shorter
;; (module "unix.lsp")
;; </pre>
;; All functions are named like the UNIX functions they implelement but with
;; the unix: namespace prefix. All functions work similar to the UNIX libc functions
;; they implement but return 'nil' instead of '-1' for failure and 'true' instead
;; of 0 for success. Note that in the implementaion most parameter types are casted
;; even though redundant in most situation. The addional cast avoids segfaulting
;; of the imported functions when supplied with wrong parameter types, i.e. for strings.
;; Some times the 'int' cast is used to supply default values of an argument, in case
;; the argument is not given.
;;
;; The arguments are given in, is the order used by the equivalent libc functions, not
;; the order as used by shell  commandline utilities with the same name.
;;
;; Some of the wordings from functions descriptions are taken from BSD man pages.
;;
;; This module contains wrappers for the following libc functions:
;; 'getuid', 'geteuid', 'getgid', 'getegid', 
;; 'setuid', 'seteuid', 'setgid', 'setegid',
;; 'kill', 'chmod', 'ioctl', 'mkfifo', 'mltemp', 'syslog'
