Ah, OK, thanks for digging that up. As I mentioned OSS came into existence in 
the early 1990s.
Yes, I'd agree, it is time for a refresher...

The "C/C++ Programmer's Guide for NonStop Systems" mentions POSIX.1 from 1990
and POSIX.2 from 1992. Refer to the POSIX history at

The 2004 edition is only a minor update (bug fixes) of the 2001 edition.
POSIX:2001 is the same as "Single UNIX Specification Version 3" and the same as
the "Base Specifications Issue 6". Three different names for the same standard.
