Detailed Description

The Cobalt/POSIX interface is an implementation of a subset of the Single Unix specification over the Cobalt core.

The routines from this subset are implemented as wrapper functions as defined by the linker (–wrap option, see man ld(1)). The linker flags for enabling symbol wrapping can be obtained from the following command: xeno-config –posix –ldflags. The full documentation for xeno-config can be found at https://xenomai.org/documentation/xenomai-3/html/man1/xeno-config/index.html.

When symbol wrapping is enabled:

With or without symbol wrapping:

Qualifying POSIX calls explicitly as described above may prove useful for invoking real-time services selectively within a large POSIX code base, for which globally enabling symbol wrapping would be unpractical. This may also help in implementing real-time service libraries for which depending on the linker's symbol wrapping mechanism is not suitable.

This said, conforming to the POSIX standard unspoiled by macro tricks for developing an application may be a significant upside as well. YMMV.
