POSIX or the C++ STL do not have freely available documentation yet there are Open Source implementations of both (although I'm not sure there is a certified POSIX compliant Open Source implementation). I'm still fighting OASIS for the right to post to xml-dev; you can post this back to the list if you want to. One way to define an API is with .h files or Java (tm) interface .java or .class files. The licenses on those files may or may not allow you to link your code against them. As it happens, SAX .java files are in the public domain, meeting the OSI requirements. Ari.
