Proposal for New Work Item: POSIX Device Control


The US requests ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC22/WG15 to forward a request for a New Work Item for proposed IEEE Project: POSIX Device Control. 


A new Project Authorization Request (PAR) was approved at the July 2000 IEEE PASC/SEC meeting and forwarded to the IEEE Standards Board for approval. 


This project will be based on a section from IEEE Project 1003.1d that failed to reach consensus and was removed from that document for further work.  Consequently, mature text already exists for this document.
