missing man pages for thread-safe res_n* resolver functions
Last modified: 2009-04-21 03:02:04 EDT
Description of problem:
A man page exists for a number of resolver functions including res_init, res_query, res_search, etc, but not for the thread-safe 'res_n' flavor of those functions, res_ninit, res_nquery, res_nsearch, etc.
The thread-safe functions use a user-declared res_state struct instead of the shared _res.
Please add man pages for res_ninit, res_nquery, res_nsearch, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man res_nquery
No manual entry for res_nquery
a man page on res_nquery should be displayed
In the glibc source tree, see resolv/README section "Using the resolver in multi-threaded code" for a description of the functions.
This task is on man-pages upstream todo list now. If time permits I will create the man page but there are probably more relevant persons (the authors of these functions) which could do it.
