You indeed answered the question, but my point is the answer could just as 
well have been "none", since many software is correctly functioning with 
non language specific implementations of these procedures. Wether or not 
language specific code has to be used depends on the desired functionality 
of the software. I.e. a Word processor will use language specific codes, a 
Unix command line text processing utility uses language independend code.
