Description: The Single UNIX Specification (SUS) is a set of open, consensus specifications that define the requirements for a conformant UNIX system. The standardized programming environment provides a broad-based functional set of interfaces to support the porting of existing UNIX applications and the development of new applications. The environment also supports a set of utilities for application development. The core specifications of the SUS are developed and maintained by the Austin Group, which is a joint working group of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Joint Technical Committee (JTC) 1 Subcommittee (SC) 22 and The Open Group.
