The C POSIX Client Libraries are designed to enable development of client software across a variety of platforms and operating systems. Two examples are using a Linux operating system on an AMD platform, and an Apple Macintosh OS X operating system running on an AMD platform. Three C POSIX client software libraries are available. To develop applications, download the Binaries library. To run sample applications, download the Samples library. To create a client software library for your specific development environment, download and build the Source Code library.
