intro - introduction to glossary section
This section contains a glossary of common HP-UX terms. References to
other HP-UX documentation are included as appropriate. Entities in
italics with a following parenthesized roman number, such as sh(1),
wait(2), or fopen(3S) refer to entries in the other sections of this
manual. Items in bold face refer to other entries in this glossary.
Any italicized manual names refer to separate manuals that are either
included with your system or available separately.
The definitions specifically reflect the HP-UX operating system,
although some terms and definitions are also derived from those in the
emerging IEEE POSIX standards and the X/Open Portability Guide.
Differences in wording exist to more specifically reflect the
characteristics of the HP-UX system.
