Where are all the functions gone that used to be in libc?



The C library has exploded. The manual page may give an
indication where to find a specific function.


Those libraries are essentially split over two directories:



/usr/lib /usr/ccs/lib.


Important libraries:



/usr/lib:
libsocket - socket functions
libnsl - network services library



/usr/ccs/lib:
libgen - regular expression functions
libcurses - the SysVR4 curses/terminfo library.

In Solaris 7 the contents of /usr/ccs/lib was moved back to
/usr/lib.
