I can open a file with "a+", which, for this software, means "O_RDWR | O_APPEND | O_CREAT | n_O_NOFOLLOW" on Linux, Solaris and OpenBSD, but FreeBSD complains, i think because O_APPEND. (I think only because the VM does not survive resumes and other pauses here, which frustrated me over time. It is old VM.) I mean, it seems i have to sprinkle more /dev/null string comparisons all over the place, but i wonder whether that really belongs there.. for /dev/null?
Well, now that i am here. I have installed pcc and tcc ports because clang is much too slow, especially in VM, but they cannot be used because of mysterious attributes in some system header. I usually compile them on my own, but that did not help on FreeBSD too, at least not last time i tried. This is a bit of a pity, i have not tried it myself but one of the core developers of the tiny CC, who was part of ELF development, said, once that happened, that he made it compile the Linux kernel (!) again and "that seems to work", so it is a *real* pity that not even rather primitive C89 user programs can be compiled (with those compilers). That on v11.1, and with pkg stuff.
