Description

We have an stdio(3C) man page, but none for stdin/stdout/stderr(3C) - the global variables it actually describes. Solve by adding symlinks to stdio(3C).

History

#1

Updated by Yuri Pankov over 8 years ago

fd(4) looks like a better candidate for stdin, stdout, stderr manpages.

#2

Updated by Yuri Pankov over 8 years ago

On the related note, I have a strong feeling that fd manpage should live in section 7 (special files) and could mention the stdio(3C) in the SEE ALSO section. I'll make these changes if you agree with them.

For /dev/{stdin,stdout,stderr} certainly. The topic was the C library interface, but we can include the /dev files too.

That seems correct to me, as everything else in /dev is in section 7 and it is not really documenting a file format.

Sorry, I misunderstood your proposal. I'll create separate issue for /dev files.
