for some time now i have been wondering why the declaration of the driver
interface posix calls (open, close, ioctl, ...) are split over 3 header
files? (i don't know by heart which 3, and i don't have a BeOS system nearby
at this moment)
wouldn't it make much more sense to have all those calls combined in 1 header file?
not to mention the fact that the BeBook does not contain information on how to actually call and use device drivers.
i learned it by going through the examples a year ago, but still...
of course i don't know very much about posix, so my question could be a little silly, but does anyone know the 'why' of this?
kind regards, Bruno.
