Description Mike Perry 2004-01-07 14:17:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031114 Galeon/1.3.10

Description of problem:
While there is a _sysctl(2) that describes the syscall interface,
there is actually a glibc library function sysctl that should be used
instead, and should be documented in sysctl(3).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 3 sysctl

Actual Results:  No manpage

Expected Results:  A manpage. man 2 sysctl gives the _sysctl
interface. The library function should be used instead.
