4.16. Some Solaris Nonportable Programming Practices
As the preceding comparison tables of system and library APIs show, a few Solaris calls are not portable to the Linux platform.Table 4-31 identifies some of the top incompatible APIs that may be encountered when porting Solaris applications to Linux.
Caution is advised when using the equivalent Linux solutions presented. The list is presented only as a reference and not as officially recommended solutions. Investigate the viability of the solutions before planning to implement them in your applications.
