For any TPF developers contemplating a port of the Apache library for the
TPF and z/TPF OS, they may find the following documents from IBM helpful.

on POSIX.1.

A port was done for SourcePro Stdlib ed7 on z/OS 1.4 (tho, not fully
certified - we just made sure the examples worked), and will be done for ed9
(possibly on z/OS 1.7 and again, not fully certified) - soon, I think.

I'm not aware of any effort currently underway but it would certainly
be an interesting exercise. In addition, we (Rogue Wave) might need to
port the project there in the future so getting a head start now would
come in handy. I'm not sure if we have access to a z/OS box at the
moment (IIRC, John Hollis had a z/OS laptop at some point) so it might
be useful to find out if IBM offers some sort of a "test drive" program
similar to the one offered by HP:
