getdelim(3) and getline(3) for NetBSD?
See http://www.opengroup.org/austin/faq.html question 24.
Also see http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n1337.pdf
getdelim and getline functions were introduced recently.
IMHO it whould be nice to see these function in NetBSD (NetBSD-6?).
getdelim, for example, can make xargs -0 implementation much simplier.
Reentrant getline(3) also seems good to me.
Why 'xargs -0' and 'find -print0' was/is absent in Caldera/Solaris and others?
From wip/heirloom-find (opensourced by Caldera years ago) manual page.
The -print0 operand supported by some other implementations is
considered a very limited work-around since it does not allow
the output to be processed by utilities unaware of NUL
characters; it has therefore not been included here.
