Description

rand(3) and random(3) should really have references to
arc4random(3) in their SEE ALSO section (since it is
related). The FreeBSD rand(3)/random(3) man-pages have
that reference.

Also, the random(4) man-page is missing quite a few
references in its SEE ALSO section - check the FreeBSD
random(4) man-page and you'll see a lot of references
there.

Can somebody do me a favour please ? I have a website
with a .tar.gz file and I would like to check to see
that it is a binary file which has not been corrupted,
but I don't have a BSD box online I can check it from.
Could someone please download:

http://www.leopard.uk.com/cion/C12G1.tgz

And check that it extracts ok ? It is a TAR GZIPPED
archive.

I would be most grateful if someone could do that for
me !

Cheers !

Sincerely,
R Carey.

I'll let Sascha handle this bit.
