Hello Konrad!

I already guessed that, because on Linux
    man 2 open
    man 3p open
shows the different interface.

Because I implemented open(), close(), read() and write() on an MSP430
µC platform I needed to get the interface right. I started from the
documented minimal implementation for the aforementioned functions and
failed because the library defines open() according to the POSIX
standard but implemented and documented it according to the legacy standard.
