Bug 000160

When Created: 06/12/1997 04:26:33
Against DJGPP version: 2.01
By whom: Esa.Peuha@helsinki.fi
Abstract: libc.inf: missing syntax
libc.inf gives no calling syntax for the followinc functions:

fork
ioctl
mkfifo
mknod
pipe
sync

By whom: broeker@physik.rwth-aachen.de
This is not really a problem. These functions are only provided for
Unix compatibility, and they don't do anything at all except for
returning failure. As no-one should ever have to write software
using these functions on DJGPP, there's no need to tell how you would
do that. And in a porting situation, the calls will already be there,
and they'll probably have to be #ifdef'ed out anyway, so why bother?
