[patch] hsearch.3: update ERRORS section

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


man-pages version: latest git repository
why:
Remove ENOMEM and ESRCH from the list for hcreate() and hcreate_h().
The (e)glibc implementation of the two functions (of course!) doesn't
set such errors. The two error codes are garbage from commit fe80e23e.

Then, hdestroy_r() was added to the list.
