comment Are multiple redirects within an AND-OR list valid in POSIX shell syntax?

comment POSIX compliant way to find out if a process with a certain PID is alive
Are these man pages from the POSIX standard? Could you please share the URLs to these documents? Could you also please answer the three specific questions I have asked?
