Yes unfortunately, if you are unsure whether a functions is POSIX-only just
have a look at the documentation. If there is a prefix like (POSIX) or (Linux)
then its only availalbe on that platform(s).
Maybe one could write a wrapper in the future that uses WinAPI calls to
emulate something like getspnam under Windows. But I'm not very familiar with
the WinAPI by myself. Windows support was just a thing I added because I need
this library in a cross-platform project.
