Description Trenton D. Adams 2000-10-01 19:27:36 EDT
The man page for fopen regarding the "a+" option is invalid.  It says that 
it opens a file for reading/writing.  This is not true.  It opens it for 
reading/appending.  You can only write to the end of a file, not to 
anywhere else with this option specified.  I don't know how to distribute 
this information to the Linux community, so I was hoping that RedHat might 
be able to.
