Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) is a set of standards that are defined by the IEEE society. It defines various APIs along with command-line interfaces and utility interfaces to maintain software compatibility between various operating systems. POSIX Compliance provides maximum flexibility to write applications that can be executed on various platforms and increases the portability of code. The RTEMS developers community has kept it well compliant with various standards. But with the advancement of time and technology, its up-gradation becomes an interminable task. POSIX Compliance will require to add various APIs and different interfaces as specified by the POSIX IEEE Standard 1003.1.
