Do I really need to check if BUFSIZ is defined?It may even be forced by POSIX, I didn't look. Keep portability in mind

when coding, as other systems may simply not look a lot like your usual
Linux distro (we Hurd people know that better than many).
Is there an official website to get the specification from? The one I found asked me to pay for a copy?! :-(

for that case ? It seems to me you could use the stack.
You're perfectly right. The BUFF_SIZE was computed using log10(pid) in a previous version of the path that's why it was dynamically done!
I'll do it this way everywhere I can.
