Description Ulrich Drepper 2002-04-03 13:47:52 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020402

Description of problem:
The getipnodebyname, getipnodebyaddr, and freehostent functions are not part of
glibc.  They were briefly part of a development version but never released.  The
function originate from XNS/POSIX.1g where the people soon realized that they
are not suitable.  getaddrinfo is the one interface to use.

Remove the man pages for these functions.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man freehostent
