I know that this probably will generate a lot of work, but I'm willing
to do as much of it as I can (he says, safe in the knowledge that he
only has Solaris2). Perhaps as the only change for rc-1.6?

What if we wrote rc to posix (or UNIX(tm) if posix isn't enough) and
removed as much of the #ifdef's as possible. Then, on systems without
posix support, we could  create a posix library for that operating
system. Only covering the missing posix calls that rc uses, ofcourse.

Has this kind of thing been done before and failed?

(I have done this for some code that run's under 3 similar real time
OS's and like the result. But then I don't like #ifdef).

Best Wishes, Bengt
