Sourceware Bugzilla – Bug 6039
libpthread docs no longer get included in manual
Last modified: 2008-09-10 05:57:05 UTC
When glibc was built with linuxthreads, documentation for libpthread would get
included in the manual, from linuxthreads.texi. Now that glibc has transitioned
to nptl, this documentation no longer gets included in the manual. It is not in
the manual at <http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/>. I suggest that
linuxthreads.texi be moved into glibc. There does not appear to be anything
linuxthreads-specific about it.
I miss this so much too. Thanks to Mark for letting me know about the location
of the old description:
Is there anyone working on this? What is the current status?
