Bug 000124

When Created: 11/21/1996 20:17:48
Against DJGPP version: 2.01
By whom: fighteer@cs.com
Abstract: Libc.inf docs missing function descriptions: srand()
The libc docs in 2.01 omit a description of the srand() function.  rand(), random(),
and srandom() are all described, but srand() is not.

Note added: 11/21/1996 20:21:23

Also missing from the v2.x docs, but present in v1.x, is a separate entry for the
va_list type.  Instead, the description of va_list and the related macros va_start(),
va_arg(), and va_end() seems to be scattered around the various functions that use
the va_list data type, without a clear explanation of their usage.  This is
somewhat annoying, and potentially dangerous to those users who are unfamiliar
with the va_args system.

I also can't seem to get srand() to work at all.  So I use random() and srandom() instead.  Anyone know why srand() seems to do sweet FA?
