when compiling on NextStep i get _putenv

When i try to compile a certain program with:
"cc -posix -o program program.c"
i get:
"ld: Undefined symbols:
_putenv"

And then it exits, and the program is supposed be in Posix standards, so i know it's not the Posix cmd., if i don't use it i get garble, so, it must be something else.
Is there any options cmds. i can use for this problem ?

Even though it is part of the posix standard, you may still need to tell the compiler what libraries to link in. Check with your compiler's documentation to find out which library contains the code for putenv and add it to your compiler line.

I have compiled on Linux & Windows and got no error. So , i don't know if it is a library, or the way the compiler takes the data.

try cc -posix -lc -o program program.c since putenv is an element of the standard C library
