Beware of Zig

As the time of writing (latest stable Zig version is 0.11.0), Zig’s is often arbitrary when handling POSIX API error.

Example 1 Example 2

Advice: use C POSIX API directly for a more robust experience.

Update: Found another Zig bug, where std.fs.Dir.readFile may return without the entire file content. As for why my issue is closed as not planned but the corresponding PR is open, this is the reason I think.
