Summary 0001809: close() guidance to use fclose() should also discuss fdopen()
Description In the Application Usage section for close(), it currently states:

An application that had used the stdio routine fopen() to open a file should
use the corresponding fclose() routine rather than close(). Once a file is
closed, the file descriptor no longer exists, since the integer corresponding
to it no longer refers to a file.

Nothing I see currently gives similar guidance for what to do after using
fdopen() so that users know that once they've called fdopen() on an fd
they must now use fclose() and not just close() the underlying fd out from
under stdio.
Desired Action Change the first sentence to something like:

An application that had used the stdio routine fopen() to open a file,
or that had used fdopen() to create a stdio stream for an existing file
descriptor, should use the corresponding fclose() routine rather than close().

And possibly add similar text to the fdopen() Application Usage section.
Tags No tags attached.

Apologies, I selected the wrong version when filing, this should have been
filed against Issue 8, Draft 4.
