When Was The OSF Founded Unix

The Open Software Foundation (OSF) was an organization founded in 1988 to create an open standard for an implementation of the Unix operating system.
The founding of the organization was largely seen as a response to the collaboration between AT&T and Sun Microsystems on UNIX System V Release 4, and a fear that other vendors would be locked out of the standardization process. This led Scott McNealy of Sun to quip that "OSF" really stood for "Oppose Sun Forever."
OSF's standard Unix implementation was known as OSF/1 and was first released in 1992.[2] For the most part, it was a failure; by the time OSF stopped development of OSF/1 in 1994, the only vendor using OSF/1 was Digital, which rebranded it Digital UNIX
In February 1996 the new OSF merged with X/Open to become The Open Group.

Despite the similarity in name and the fact that both groups were based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, there was never any connection between OSF and the Free Software Foundation.

Delete Last Char in String C program Simple Way

How to delete the last character in a string?
Lets say I have a string "/data/share/" I want to delete the last character from the string ie "/" so that output will be "/data/share"; Here are some methods to do this in C language.
one way could be use of strncat() function;

The strncat() function appends not more than n characters from s2, and
then adds a terminating `\0'.
#include
Another simple way is,
say the string variable is str_p
Then simply put
str_p[(strlen(str_p)-1)] = '\0';
And you are done;
