IMO, "library" implies just that, that many things are collected into
one place, nothing about how it is implemented.

Do you think that "fgets()" has the same implementation on Sun/Solaris
(which I use at work) and on the 6502?

char *p="char *p=%c%s%c;main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}";main(){printf(p,34,p,34);}
