5.18. Common APIs
AIX and Linux are both UNIX systems with common features. Figure 5-1 presents a list of the remaining common system and library APIs that are compatible between AIX and Linux. Some APIs are implemented in Linux Standard Base (LSB) and are also shown here. Although the list can be used as a reference when porting from AIX to Linux, additional Linux APIs (compatible and noncompatible with AIX) not referenced in this list should be considered. Refer to the book Building Applications with the Linux Standard Base, written by core members of the Linux Standard Base Team, and refer to the GNU glibc documentation online.
