dlopen dlsym dlclose

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)
the dlopen(3) page, as well as dlsym(3) and dlclose(3) and associated
dynamic library loading pages are gone from the man-pages RPM, and indeed
from the entire distribution.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount each Redhat 7.0 distro CD.
2. run " rpm -qlp /mnt/cdrom/Redhat/RPMS/* | grep 'dlopen' "
Actual Results: This command only yields results for man-pages-pl and
Expected Results: There should have been a dlopen.3.gz file somewhere in
The CHANGELOG for Tue May 30 2000 says that they were removed because they
are in other packages; however, running " rpm -qlp /mnt/cdrom/Redhat/RPMS/*
| grep 'dlopen' " for each distribution CD only yields results for the
man-pages-pl and man-pages-ja packages. What other package includes these
It was part of the ld.so package, which was dropped shrotly after (it's only
necesarry for libc5).
The man pages have since returned.
