There are quite a few other functions in string and unistd
that have also been implemented.

I need to fix a few more bugs in the compiler and linker.
Once I do, it should be possible to pull glibc's stdio over
into pnetC.  Until then, printf is just a stub for testing.

It probably won't be possible to compile glibc out of the box
for a while yet, but that is one of the eventual goals.

Feel free to pick an area of the library and contribute code.

Don't worry about stdio, as I'll be porting glibc's code
very soon.  The base-level open/read/write stuff is already
mostly done in unistd.  There shouldn't be any need to write
printf/scanf using __invoke__.

Have a look in the HACKING file for the "susv3" specification
URL.  There's plenty of other stuff to do, or help out Gopal
on pnetlib, since that's one of most critical areas right now.
