The C library on VMS is identical to the C library on any other ANSI C
compliant system (Unix, Windows, ...), except for the POSIX and Unix
extensions which are identical (mostly) to their Unix equivalents. It
uses normal C null terminated strings and descriptors don't come into
it. They are only used for VMS-specific system services and library
routines (which ofc. do not exist on Linux/glibc).
