read() and EOF
The linux man pages say that read() returns a 0 at end of file. Is
there a guarantee that it will continue to do that on subsequent read()
from the same fd, or is it conformant to return a 0 once, and then an
error after that? (I vaguely recall seeing that there are situations
where EOF is only returned once, but I could be mistaken.)
