These functions constitute minor libraries and other miscellaneous run‐
time facilities. Most are available only when programming in C.
The list below includes libraries which provide device-independent
plotting functions, terminal-independent screen management routines for
two-dimensional nonbitmap display terminals, functions for managing
data bases with inverted indexes, and sundry routines used in executing
commands on remote machines. The routines and reside in the standard C
runtime library “-lc”. All other functions are located in separate
libraries indicated in each manual entry.
