PCTS:151-2, POSIX Test Suite

The NIST-PCTS:151-2 is a POSIX conformance test suite (PCTS) written by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It tests system implementations for conformance to FIPS 151-2. FIPS 151-2 is based on the ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX)--

Part 1:System Application Program Interface (API) [C Language] and the additional requirements as restated in Appendix A of the NIST-PCTS:151-2 Installation and Testing Guide. The assertions tested by this PCTS are only those of the IEEE Std 2003.1-1992 Test Methods for Measuring Conformance to POSIX.1 that relate to FIPS 151-2.
