I think dmr or ken said something along the lines of "if I could redesign Unix, the first thing I would change is creat to create."
@tedu reports that this originated somewhere in The UNIX Programming Environment, a book on Unix by bwk and rob.
What is "creat"?
@masterofthetiger The name of the Unix function that creates files.
Interesting. I use Linux every day and I hadn't heard of that.
@tedu I don’t remember the quote very clearly so I’m probably wrong about the details.
@tedu Do you have a link to the original or something I could use to find it?
