INTRO(3) Library Routines INTRO(3)
intro - introduction to library routines
This chapter provides information on various library routines.
The SYNOPSIS section of each manual page details the prototype of the
routine and any required header files. The DESCRIPTION explains the
semantics of the routine.
Reference may be made to symbolic links or other features or functions
that are either unimplemented or otherwise unavailable under GNO. This
information has often been obtained from the original BSD manual pages.
In most cases such information has been retained in the GNO manual
pages either because such functionality is planned or because the
information is relevent to code intended to run on other BSD operating
In this chapter, return types and values are specific to the particular
routine. The appropriate manual page should be consulted.
Note that unlike the Chapter 2 calls, routines in this chapter cannot
be relied upon to set errno(2) in any predictable way unless doing so
is specifically described in the manual page for that routine.
