Taken from C99 standard:

      The strsep function was proposed as an enhanced replacement of strtok
      function. While this is a common extension, et is easy enough for a
      user provide this functionality, and it is unclear that an implementor
      can do a substantially better job; so, there was not sufficient
      support for adding this feature.

From man 3 strsep:


And the standard used is POSIX (I doubt C99 admit 'read', 'write' or
'gettimeofday'), although we never have decided what version of POSIX...
