* Heh. Sit down at a VM/CMS machine and type ls. Or a VMS box and type
* any of the find commands that have been bantered about.
* "EVERYwhere" just isn't possible. One has to decide what degree of
* portability one cares about. Some people here don't seem to care about
* anything but NetBSD/i386. Others want code they can compile and run on
* VMS and VxWorks and IRIX and MUSIC. Most are somewhere in between.
I should probably have specified "EVERYwhere". As in:
#define EVERYwhere "all UNIX and UNIX-like platforms"
Needless to say, VM/CMS, VMS and MUSIC do not qualify... :-)
