@raichoo But this is UNIX. We don't end words in "e".
@DrLuke Because UNIX also spelt it "creat()":
@hirnbrot yes but why? Is there a reason for it?
@DrLuke I've not found one specifically for "creat()", but early computing in general had quite tight character limits. E.g. you hear stories of how early linkers only used the first 6 characters of a function name (which doesn't apply to creat, which is 5 characters).
I like to think that Ken made a typo.
