Just because the OP's question is highly system specific. The function
is standard, but what the OP needs to know to port the program almost
certainly won't be. Even determining what 013 and 1 mean is system
specific as far as C is concerned. comp.unix.programmer is probably the
best place to find out what's needed to port code like this.
