Description Ronald F. Guilmette 2008-08-12 21:50:01 UTC
	The resolver library routine called res_findzonecut2 which is part
	of libc isn't documented on any man page... at least none that I've
	found.  But this is a useful function, and should have a man page.

Fix: 

The man page for resolver(3) should be enhanced so as to also
	document res_findzonecut2.

	Depending on how the folks at IBM feel about it, you could probably
	just snatch most of the verbage necessary to document this function
	from the following URL:

	http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/apis/resfindzonecut.htm

	...where IBM seems to have already done a pretty Nice Job of documenting
	the original res_findzonecut function.  Note however that in the
	res_findzonecut2 function, the 7th parameter has type
	(union res_sockaddr_union *) rather than type (struct in_addr *) as
	for the original function, res_findzonecut.
How-To-Repeat: 	man res_findzonecut2
	man res_findzonecut
	man 3 resolver

	(The first two commands above just produce errors.  The third shows
	that the man page which documents all of the other res_* resolver
	library routines fails to even mention res_findzonecut.
