This is interesting and should definitely be studied by anyone porting
stdcxx to TPF. In particular, the The Life Cycle of a File section
might have a bearing on us as we do take advantage of the "old UNIX
hack" in file.cpp and perhaps also in the testsuite (although I
prefer to think of it as a rather clever feature than a hack :)

STLport 3.2.1 is years old. The latest stable version is 4.6.2 with
5.0 being tested. But given that the article is from Q1 2001 it's
likely that later versions of STLport have been ported there.

Thanks for the links!
