Aside from various small fixes to a range of pages, the main changes in man-pages-3.45 are as follows:

  • A new s390_runtime_instr(2) by Jan Glauber documents the s390-specific system call of the same name that was added in Linux 3.7.
  • I've substantially rewritten the syslog(2) page to improve clarity, and added various details to the page.
  • A new if_nametoindex(3) page by YOSHIFUJI Hideaki documents the if_nametoindex() and if_indextoname() functions.
  • A new if_nameindex(3) page by YOSHIFUJI Hideaki, with some additions by me, documents the if_nameindex() and if_freenameindex() functions.
