Description

In the netdir(3nsl) man page point_to_args should be changed to pointer_to_args here:

     int netdir_options(struct netconfig  *config, int option, int fildes,
          char *point_to_args);

In the rest of the man page pointer_to_args is used instead of point_to_args.

In addition, ordering of paragraphs in the man page description section is incorrect. At the end of the section there are few paragraphs describing options for netdir_options().

Right before that there are two paragraphs describing taddr2uaddr() and uaddr2taddr().

And before those two paragraphs there is one more paragraph describing netdir_options().

It looks like two paragraphs describing taddr2uaddr() and uaddr2taddr() should be moved at the end of the description section.

Also, first two paragraphs in the return values section are describing netdir_perror() and netdir_sperror(). I believe these two paragraphs belongs to the description section too (at the end; after taddr2uaddr() and uaddr2taddr()).

One more typo (thise) here:

     The netdir_sperror() function returns a pointer to a  buffer
     which  contains  the  error  message  string.  The buffer is
     overwritten on each  call.  In  multithreaded  applications,
     thise buffer is implemented as thread-specific data.
