Solaris: Standard Compliant Programs

Where the behavior specified by the POSIX standard differs from the historical behavior provided by a command, Solaris provides a different version of the command in either /usr/xpg6/bin or in /usr/xpg4/bin. On Solaris systems, you should place these two directories into your search path before the standard /usr/bin directory. Some of these commands are not covered in this book, since they are either administrative commands or are obsolete. Also, today, it is unlikely that the commands in /usr/ucb will be useful; you probably should not have that directory in your search path.
