man-pages-3.50 is released

I've released man-pages-3.50. The release tarball is available on The browsable online pages can be found on The Git repository for man-pages is available on

This is a relatively small release; the notable changes in man-pages-3.50 are as follows:

  • I've rewritten the canonicalize_file_name(3) manual page, adding quite a bit more detail.
  • I've updated and added several details to what was a rather outdated ioperm(2) manual page.
  • The syscalls(2) page now includes the kernel version in which all system calls were added.
  • Elie de Brauwer added descriptions for various ioctl() interfaces for /dev/random in the random(4) page.
