ALSA API and C lib

Hi Guys. Just the one silly Q today.
I downloaded a pdf that is the ALSA API document, most ALSA related sites refer to this doc.
I have written (from a tutorial) some ALSA C code that compiles and links no prob.
I have located and studied the ALSA C header files on my PC. OK.
WHY, can I find no reference in those C files and headers to any specific API call, why for example do I have a c function snd_pcm_open, when there is no reference to this in the API doc ?
Do the two relate at all and if not, what is the point of the ALSA API pdf ? I am very puzzled.
Had I not found the tutorial I would have attempted to write code based on the API pdf, and failed.
