X/Open Ltd, the non-profit company owned by ICL and 10 other mainly European Unix systems manufacturers, has reached agreement with the US National Bureau of Standards – part of the Commerce Department – to work towards the creation of a common application environment as an extension to the IEEE Posix non-proprietary definition of Unix System V. London-based X/Open will be working with the Bureau’s Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology to define users’ needs and to research and specify system standards for incorporation into the common application environment. X/Open is incorporating Posix into its common application environment and the US Federal government is also strongly committed to Posix as a means of standardising its subst-antial investment in Unix systems.
