Appendix C Installing the GNU C Library
Before you do anything else, you should read the FAQ at
<>. It answers common questions and
describes problems you may experience with compilation and installation.
Features can be added to the GNU C Library via "add-on" bundles.
These are separate tar files, which you unpack into the top level of the
source tree. Then you give 'configure' the '--enable-add-ons' option to
activate them, and they will be compiled into the library.
You will need recent versions of several GNU tools: definitely GCC
and GNU Make, and possibly others. *Note Tools for Compilation::,
* Menu:
* Configuring and compiling:: How to compile and test GNU libc.
* Running make install:: How to install it once you've got it
* Tools for Compilation:: You'll need these first.
* Linux:: Specific advice for GNU/Linux systems.
* Reporting Bugs:: So they'll get fixed.

File:, Node: Configuring and compiling, Next: Running make install, Up: Installation
C.1 Configuring and compiling the GNU C Library
The GNU C Library cannot be compiled in the source directory. You must
build it in a separate build directory. For example, if you have
unpacked the GNU C Library sources in '/src/gnu/glibc-VERSION', create a
directory '/src/gnu/glibc-build' to put the object files in. This
allows removing the whole build directory in case an error occurs, which
is the safest way to get a fresh start and should always be done.
From your object directory, run the shell script 'configure' located
at the top level of the source tree. In the scenario above, you'd type
$ ../glibc-VERSION/configure ARGS...
Please note that even though you're building in a separate build
directory, the compilation may need to create or modify files and
directories in the source directory.
'configure' takes many options, but the only one that is usually
mandatory is '--prefix'. This option tells 'configure' where you want
the GNU C Library installed. This defaults to '/usr/local', but the
normal setting to install as the standard system library is
'--prefix=/usr' for GNU/Linux systems and '--prefix=' (an empty prefix)
for GNU/Hurd systems.
It may also be useful to set the CC and CFLAGS variables in the
environment when running 'configure'. CC selects the C compiler that
will be used, and CFLAGS sets optimization options for the compiler.
The following list describes all of the available options for
Install machine-independent data files in subdirectories of
'DIRECTORY'. The default is to install in '/usr/local'.
Install the library and other machine-dependent files in
subdirectories of 'DIRECTORY'. The default is to the '--prefix'
directory if that option is specified, or '/usr/local' otherwise.
Look for kernel header files in DIRECTORY, not '/usr/include'. The
GNU C Library needs information from the kernel's header files
describing the interface to the kernel. The GNU C Library will
normally look in '/usr/include' for them, but if you specify this
option, it will look in DIRECTORY instead.
This option is primarily of use on a system where the headers in
'/usr/include' come from an older version of the GNU C Library.
Conflicts can occasionally happen in this case. You can also use
this option if you want to compile the GNU C Library with a newer
set of kernel headers than the ones found in '/usr/include'.
Specify add-on packages to include in the build. If this option is
specified with no list, it enables all the add-on packages it finds
in the main source directory; this is the default behavior. You
may specify an explicit list of add-ons to use in LIST, separated
by spaces or commas (if you use spaces, remember to quote them from
the shell). Each add-on in LIST can be an absolute directory name
or can be a directory name relative to the main source directory,
or relative to the build directory (that is, the current working
directory). For example,
This option is currently only useful on GNU/Linux systems. The
VERSION parameter should have the form X.Y.Z and describes the
smallest version of the Linux kernel the generated library is
expected to support. The higher the VERSION number is, the less
compatibility code is added, and the faster the code gets.
Use the binutils (assembler and linker) in 'DIRECTORY', not the
ones the C compiler would default to. You can use this option if
the default binutils on your system cannot deal with all the
constructs in the GNU C Library. In that case, 'configure' will
detect the problem and suppress these constructs, so that the
library will still be usable, but functionality may be lost--for
example, you can't build a shared libc with old binutils.
Use this option if your computer lacks hardware floating-point
support and your operating system does not emulate an FPU.
Don't build shared libraries even if it is possible. Not all
systems support shared libraries; you need ELF support and
(currently) the GNU linker.
Don't build libraries with profiling information. You may want to
use this option if you don't plan to do profiling.
Compile static versions of the NSS (Name Service Switch) libraries.
This is not recommended because it defeats the purpose of NSS; a
program linked statically with the NSS libraries cannot be
dynamically reconfigured to use a different name database.
By default the C library is built with support for thread-local
storage if the used tools support it. By using '--without-tls'
this can be prevented though there generally is no reason since it
creates compatibility problems.
By default, dynamic tests are linked to run with the installed C
library. This option hardcodes the newly built C library path in
dynamic tests so that they can be invoked directly.
Enable lock elision for pthread mutexes by default.
The file 'pt_chown' is a helper binary for 'grantpt' (*note
Pseudo-Terminals: Allocation.) that is installed setuid root to fix
up pseudo-terminal ownership. It is not built by default because
systems using the Linux kernel are commonly built with the 'devpts'
filesystem enabled and mounted at '/dev/pts', which manages
pseudo-terminal ownership automatically. By using
'--enable-pt_chown', you may build 'pt_chown' and install it setuid
and owned by 'root'. The use of 'pt_chown' introduces additional
security risks to the system and you should enable it only if you
understand and accept those risks.
These options are for cross-compiling. If you specify both options
and BUILD-SYSTEM is different from HOST-SYSTEM, 'configure' will
prepare to cross-compile the GNU C Library from BUILD-SYSTEM to be
used on HOST-SYSTEM. You'll probably need the '--with-headers'
option too, and you may have to override CONFIGURE's selection of
the compiler and/or binutils.
If you only specify '--host', 'configure' will prepare for a native
compile but use what you specify instead of guessing what your
system is. This is most useful to change the CPU submodel. For
example, if 'configure' guesses your machine as 'i686-pc-linux-gnu'
but you want to compile a library for 586es, give
'--host=i586-pc-linux-gnu' or just '--host=i586-linux' and add the
appropriate compiler flags ('-mcpu=i586' will do the trick) to
If you specify just '--build', 'configure' will get confused.
Specify a description, possibly including a build number or build
date, of the binaries being built, to be included in '--version'
output from programs installed with the GNU C Library. For
example, '--with-pkgversion='FooBar GNU/Linux glibc build 123''.
The default value is 'GNU libc'.
Specify the URL that users should visit if they wish to report a
bug, to be included in '--help' output from programs installed with
the GNU C Library. The default value refers to the main
bug-reporting information for the GNU C Library.
To build the library and related programs, type 'make'. This will
produce a lot of output, some of which may look like errors from 'make'
but isn't. Look for error messages from 'make' containing '***'. Those
indicate that something is seriously wrong.
The compilation process can take a long time, depending on the
configuration and the speed of your machine. Some complex modules may
take a very long time to compile, as much as several minutes on slower
machines. Do not panic if the compiler appears to hang.
If you want to run a parallel make, simply pass the '-j' option with
an appropriate numeric parameter to 'make'. You need a recent GNU
'make' version, though.
To build and run test programs which exercise some of the library
facilities, type 'make check'. If it does not complete successfully, do
not use the built library, and report a bug after verifying that the
problem is not already known. *Note Reporting Bugs::, for instructions
on reporting bugs. Note that some of the tests assume they are not
being run by 'root'. We recommend you compile and test the GNU C
Library as an unprivileged user.
Before reporting bugs make sure there is no problem with your system.
The tests (and later installation) use some pre-existing files of the
system such as '/etc/passwd', '/etc/nsswitch.conf' and others. These
files must all contain correct and sensible content.
To format the 'GNU C Library Reference Manual' for printing, type
'make dvi'. You need a working TeX installation to do this. The
distribution builds the on-line formatted version of the manual, as Info
files, as part of the build process. You can build them manually with
'make info'.
The library has a number of special-purpose configuration parameters
which you can find in 'Makeconfig'. These can be overwritten with the
file 'configparms'. To change them, create a 'configparms' in your
build directory and add values as appropriate for your system. The file
is included and parsed by 'make' and has to follow the conventions for
It is easy to configure the GNU C Library for cross-compilation by
setting a few variables in 'configparms'. Set 'CC' to the
cross-compiler for the target you configured the library for; it is
important to use this same 'CC' value when running 'configure', like
this: 'CC=TARGET-gcc configure TARGET'. Set 'BUILD_CC' to the compiler
to use for programs run on the build system as part of compiling the
library. You may need to set 'AR' to cross-compiling versions of 'ar'
if the native tools are not configured to work with object files for the
target you configured for. When cross-compiling the GNU C Library, it
may be tested using 'make check
test-wrapper="SRCDIR/scripts/ HOSTNAME"', where SRCDIR
is the absolute directory name for the main source directory and
HOSTNAME is the host name of a system that can run the newly built
binaries of the GNU C Library. The source and build directories must be
visible at the same locations on both the build system and HOSTNAME.
In general, when testing the GNU C Library, 'test-wrapper' may be set
to the name and arguments of any program to run newly built binaries.
This program must preserve the arguments to the binary being run, its
working directory, all environment variables set as part of testing and
the standard input, output and error file descriptors. If 'TEST-WRAPPER
env' will not work to run a program with environment variables set, then
'test-wrapper-env' must be set to a program that runs a newly built
program with environment variable assignments in effect, those
assignments being specified as 'VAR=VALUE' before the name of the
program to be run.

C.2 Installing the C Library
To install the library and its header files, and the Info files of the
manual, type 'env LANGUAGE=C LC_ALL=C make install'. This will build
things, if necessary, before installing them; however, you should still
compile everything first. If you are installing the GNU C Library as
your primary C library, we recommend that you shut the system down to
single-user mode first, and reboot afterward. This minimizes the risk
of breaking things when the library changes out from underneath.
'make install' will do the entire job of upgrading from a previous
installation of the GNU C Library version 2.x. There may sometimes be
headers left behind from the previous installation, but those are
generally harmless. If you want to avoid leaving headers behind you can
do things in the following order.
You must first build the library ('make'), optionally check it ('make
check'), switch the include directories and then install ('make
install'). The steps must be done in this order. Not moving the
directory before install will result in an unusable mixture of header
files from both libraries, but configuring, building, and checking the
library requires the ability to compile and run programs against the old
library. The new '/usr/include', after switching the include
directories and before installing the library should contain the Linux
headers, but nothing else. If you do this, you will need to restore any
headers from libraries other than the GNU C Library yourself after
installing the library.
You can install the GNU C Library somewhere other than where you
configured it to go by setting the 'install_root' variable on the
command line for 'make install'. The value of this variable is
prepended to all the paths for installation. This is useful when
setting up a chroot environment or preparing a binary distribution. The
directory should be specified with an absolute file name.
The GNU C Library includes a daemon called 'nscd', which you may or
may not want to run. 'nscd' caches name service lookups; it can
dramatically improve performance with NIS+, and may help with DNS as
One auxiliary program, '/usr/libexec/pt_chown', is installed setuid
'root' if the '--enable-pt_chown' configuration option is used. This
program is invoked by the 'grantpt' function; it sets the permissions on
a pseudoterminal so it can be used by the calling process. If you are
using a Linux kernel with the 'devpts' filesystem enabled and mounted at
'/dev/pts', you don't need this program.
After installation you might want to configure the timezone and
locale installation of your system. The GNU C Library comes with a
locale database which gets configured with 'localedef'. For example, to
set up a German locale with name 'de_DE', simply issue the command
'localedef -i de_DE -f ISO-8859-1 de_DE'. To configure all locales that
are supported by the GNU C Library, you can issue from your build
directory the command 'make localedata/install-locales'.
To configure the locally used timezone, set the 'TZ' environment
variable. The script 'tzselect' helps you to select the right value.
As an example, for Germany, 'tzselect' would tell you to use
'TZ='Europe/Berlin''. For a system wide installation (the given paths
are for an installation with '--prefix=/usr'), link the timezone file
which is in '/usr/share/zoneinfo' to the file '/etc/localtime'. For
Germany, you might execute 'ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin

C.3 Recommended Tools for Compilation
We recommend installing the following GNU tools before attempting to
build the GNU C Library:
* GNU 'make' 3.79 or newer
You need the latest version of GNU 'make'. Modifying the GNU C
Library to work with other 'make' programs would be so difficult
that we recommend you port GNU 'make' instead. *Really.* We
recommend GNU 'make' version 3.79. All earlier versions have
severe bugs or lack features.
* GCC 4.4 or newer, GCC 4.6 recommended
GCC 4.4 or higher is required; as of this writing, GCC 4.6 is the
compiler we advise to use to build the GNU C Library.
You can use whatever compiler you like to compile programs that use
the GNU C Library.
Check the FAQ for any special compiler issues on particular
* GNU 'binutils' 2.20 or later
You must use GNU 'binutils' (as and ld) to build the GNU C Library.
No other assembler or linker has the necessary functionality at the
* GNU 'texinfo' 4.5 or later
To correctly translate and install the Texinfo documentation you
need this version of the 'texinfo' package. Earlier versions do
not understand all the tags used in the document, and the
installation mechanism for the info files is not present or works
* GNU 'awk' 3.1.2, or higher
'awk' is used in several places to generate files. Some 'gawk'
extensions are used, including the 'asorti' function, which was
introduced in version 3.1.2 of 'gawk'.
* Perl 5
Perl is not required, but it is used if present to test the
installation. We may decide to use it elsewhere in the future.
* GNU 'sed' 3.02 or newer
'Sed' is used in several places to generate files. Most scripts
work with any version of 'sed'. The known exception is the script
'po2test.sed' in the 'intl' subdirectory which is used to generate
'msgs.h' for the test suite. This script works correctly only with
GNU 'sed' 3.02. If you like to run the test suite, you should
definitely upgrade 'sed'.
If you change any of the '' files you will also need
* GNU 'autoconf' 2.53 or higher
and if you change any of the message translation files you will need
* GNU 'gettext' 0.10.36 or later
You may also need these packages if you upgrade your source tree using
patches, although we try to avoid this.

C.4 Specific advice for GNU/Linux systems
If you are installing the GNU C Library on GNU/Linux systems, you need
to have the header files from a or newer kernel around for
reference. These headers must be installed using 'make
headers_install'; the headers present in the kernel source directory are
not suitable for direct use by the GNU C Library. You do not need to
use that kernel, just have its headers installed where the GNU C Library
can access them, referred to here as INSTALL-DIRECTORY. The easiest way
to do this is to unpack it in a directory such as
'/usr/src/linux-VERSION'. In that directory, run 'make headers_install
Library with the option '--with-headers=INSTALL-DIRECTORY/include'. Use
the most recent kernel you can get your hands on. (If you are
cross-compiling the GNU C Library, you need to specify
'ARCH=ARCHITECTURE' in the 'make headers_install' command, where
ARCHITECTURE is the architecture name used by the Linux kernel, such as
'x86' or 'powerpc'.)
After installing the GNU C Library, you may need to remove or rename
directories such as '/usr/include/linux' and '/usr/include/asm', and
replace them with copies of directories such as 'linux' and 'asm' from
'INSTALL-DIRECTORY/include'. All directories present in
'INSTALL-DIRECTORY/include' should be copied, except that the GNU C
Library provides its own version of '/usr/include/scsi'; the files
provided by the kernel should be copied without replacing those provided
by the GNU C Library. The 'linux', 'asm' and 'asm-generic' directories
are required to compile programs using the GNU C Library; the other
directories describe interfaces to the kernel but are not required if
not compiling programs using those interfaces. You do not need to copy
kernel headers if you did not specify an alternate kernel header source
using '--with-headers'.
The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard for GNU/Linux systems expects some
components of the GNU C Library installation to be in '/lib' and some in
'/usr/lib'. This is handled automatically if you configure the GNU C
Library with '--prefix=/usr'. If you set some other prefix or allow it
to default to '/usr/local', then all the components are installed there.

C.5 Reporting Bugs
There are probably bugs in the GNU C Library. There are certainly
errors and omissions in this manual. If you report them, they will get
fixed. If you don't, no one will ever know about them and they will
remain unfixed for all eternity, if not longer.
It is a good idea to verify that the problem has not already been
reported. Bugs are documented in two places: The file 'BUGS' describes
a number of well known bugs and the central GNU C Library bug tracking
system has a WWW interface at <>. The
WWW interface gives you access to open and closed reports. A closed
report normally includes a patch or a hint on solving the problem.
To report a bug, first you must find it. With any luck, this will be
the hard part. Once you've found a bug, make sure it's really a bug. A
good way to do this is to see if the GNU C Library behaves the same way
some other C library does. If so, probably you are wrong and the
libraries are right (but not necessarily). If not, one of the libraries
is probably wrong. It might not be the GNU C Library. Many historical
Unix C libraries permit things that we don't, such as closing a file
If you think you have found some way in which the GNU C Library does
not conform to the ISO and POSIX standards (*note Standards and
Portability::), that is definitely a bug. Report it!
Once you're sure you've found a bug, try to narrow it down to the
smallest test case that reproduces the problem. In the case of a C
library, you really only need to narrow it down to one library function
call, if possible. This should not be too difficult.
The final step when you have a simple test case is to report the bug.
Do this at <>.
If you are not sure how a function should behave, and this manual
doesn't tell you, that's a bug in the manual. Report that too! If the
function's behavior disagrees with the manual, then either the library
or the manual has a bug, so report the disagreement. If you find any
errors or omissions in this manual, please report them to the bug
database. If you refer to specific sections of the manual, please
include the section names for easier identification.

to the GNU C Library.

a new machine or operating system.

File:, Node: Source Layout, Next: Porting, Up: Maintenance
D.1 Adding New Functions
The process of building the library is driven by the makefiles, which
make heavy use of special features of GNU 'make'. The makefiles are
very complex, and you probably don't want to try to understand them.
But what they do is fairly straightforward, and only requires that you
define a few variables in the right places.
The library sources are divided into subdirectories, grouped by
The 'string' subdirectory has all the string-manipulation functions,
'math' has all the mathematical functions, etc.
Each subdirectory contains a simple makefile, called 'Makefile',
which defines a few 'make' variables and then includes the global
makefile 'Rules' with a line like:
include ../Rules
The basic variables that a subdirectory makefile defines are:
The name of the subdirectory, for example 'stdio'. This variable
*must* be defined.
The names of the header files in this section of the library, such
as 'stdio.h'.
The names of the modules (source files) in this section of the
library. These should be simple names, such as 'strlen' (rather
than complete file names, such as 'strlen.c'). Use 'routines' for
modules that define functions in the library, and 'aux' for
auxiliary modules containing things like data definitions. But the
values of 'routines' and 'aux' are just concatenated, so there
really is no practical difference.
The names of test programs for this section of the library. These
should be simple names, such as 'tester' (rather than complete file
names, such as 'tester.c'). 'make tests' will build and run all
the test programs. If a test program needs input, put the test
data in a file called 'TEST-PROGRAM.input'; it will be given to the
test program on its standard input. If a test program wants to be
run with arguments, put the arguments (all on a single line) in a
file called 'TEST-PROGRAM.args'. Test programs should exit with
zero status when the test passes, and nonzero status when the test
indicates a bug in the library or error in building.
The names of "other" programs associated with this section of the
library. These are programs which are not tests per se, but are
other small programs included with the library. They are built by
'make others'.
Files to be installed by 'make install'. Files listed in
'install-lib' are installed in the directory specified by 'libdir'
in 'configparms' or 'Makeconfig' (*note Installation::). Files
listed in 'install-data' are installed in the directory specified
by 'datadir' in 'configparms' or 'Makeconfig'. Files listed in
'install' are installed in the directory specified by 'bindir' in
'configparms' or 'Makeconfig'.
Other files from this subdirectory which should be put into a
distribution tar file. You need not list here the makefile itself
or the source and header files listed in the other standard
variables. Only define 'distribute' if there are files used in an
unusual way that should go into the distribution.
Files which are generated by 'Makefile' in this subdirectory.
These files will be removed by 'make clean', and they will never go
into a distribution.
Extra object files which are built by 'Makefile' in this
subdirectory. This should be a list of file names like 'foo.o';
the files will actually be found in whatever directory object files
are being built in. These files will be removed by 'make clean'.
This variable is used for secondary object files needed to build
'others' or 'tests'.

File:, Node: Adding Platform-specific, Up: Source Layout
D.1.1 Platform-specific types, macros and functions
It's sometimes necessary to provide nonstandard, platform-specific
features to developers. The C library is traditionally the lowest
library layer, so it makes sense for it to provide these low-level
features. However, including these features in the C library may be a
disadvantage if another package provides them as well as there will be
two conflicting versions of them. Also, the features won't be available
to projects that do not use the GNU C Library but use other GNU tools,
like GCC.
The current guidelines are:
* If the header file provides features that only make sense on a
particular machine architecture and have nothing to do with an
operating system, then the features should ultimately be provided
as GCC built-in functions. Until then, the GNU C Library may
provide them in the header file. When the GCC built-in functions
become available, those provided in the header file should be made
conditionally available prior to the GCC version in which the
built-in function was made available.
* If the header file provides features that are specific to an
operating system, both GCC and the GNU C Library could provide it,
but the GNU C Library is preferred as it already has a lot of
information about the operating system.
* If the header file provides features that are specific to an
operating system but used by the GNU C Library, then the GNU C
Library should provide them.
The general solution for providing low-level features is to export
them as follows:
* A nonstandard, low-level header file that defines macros and inline
functions should be called 'sys/platform/NAME.h'.
* Each header file's name should include the platform name, to avoid
users thinking there is anything in common between different the
header files for different platforms. For example, a
'sys/platform/ARCH.h' name such as 'sys/platform/ppc.h' is better
than 'sys/platform.h'.
* A platform-specific header file provided by the GNU C Library
should coordinate with GCC such that compiler built-in versions of
the functions and macros are preferred if available. This means
that user programs will only ever need to include
'sys/platform/ARCH.h', keeping the same names of types, macros, and
functions for convenience and portability.
* Each included symbol must have the prefix '__ARCH_', such as
The easiest way to provide a header file is to add it to the
'sysdep_headers' variable. For example, the combination of
Linux-specific header files on PowerPC could be provided like this:
sysdep_headers += sys/platform/ppc.h
Then ensure that you have added a 'sys/platform/ppc.h' header file in
the machine-specific directory, e.g.,

D.2 Porting the GNU C Library
The GNU C Library is written to be easily portable to a variety of
machines and operating systems. Machine- and operating system-dependent
functions are well separated to make it easy to add implementations for
new machines or operating systems. This section describes the layout of
the library source tree and explains the mechanisms used to select
machine-dependent code to use.
All the machine-dependent and operating system-dependent files in the
library are in the subdirectory 'sysdeps' under the top-level library
source directory. This directory contains a hierarchy of subdirectories
(*note Hierarchy Conventions::).
Each subdirectory of 'sysdeps' contains source files for a particular
machine or operating system, or for a class of machine or operating
system (for example, systems by a particular vendor, or all machines
that use IEEE 754 floating-point format). A configuration specifies an
ordered list of these subdirectories. Each subdirectory implicitly
appends its parent directory to the list. For example, specifying the
list 'unix/bsd/vax' is equivalent to specifying the list 'unix/bsd/vax
unix/bsd unix'. A subdirectory can also specify that it implies other
subdirectories which are not directly above it in the directory
hierarchy. If the file 'Implies' exists in a subdirectory, it lists
other subdirectories of 'sysdeps' which are appended to the list,
appearing after the subdirectory containing the 'Implies' file. Lines
in an 'Implies' file that begin with a '#' character are ignored as
comments. For example, 'unix/bsd/Implies' contains:
# BSD has Internet-related things.
and 'unix/Implies' contains:
So the final list is 'unix/bsd/vax unix/bsd unix/inet unix posix'.
'sysdeps' has a "special" subdirectory called 'generic'. It is
always implicitly appended to the list of subdirectories, so you needn't
put it in an 'Implies' file, and you should not create any
subdirectories under it intended to be new specific categories.
'generic' serves two purposes. First, the makefiles do not bother to
look for a system-dependent version of a file that's not in 'generic'.
This means that any system-dependent source file must have an analogue
in 'generic', even if the routines defined by that file are not
implemented on other platforms. Second, the 'generic' version of a
system-dependent file is used if the makefiles do not find a version
specific to the system you're compiling for.
If it is possible to implement the routines in a 'generic' file in
machine-independent C, using only other machine-independent functions in
the C library, then you should do so. Otherwise, make them stubs. A
"stub" function is a function which cannot be implemented on a
particular machine or operating system. Stub functions always return an
error, and set 'errno' to 'ENOSYS' (Function not implemented). *Note
Error Reporting::. If you define a stub function, you must place the
statement 'stub_warning(FUNCTION)', where FUNCTION is the name of your
function, after its definition. This causes the function to be listed
in the installed '<gnu/stubs.h>', and makes GNU ld warn when the
function is used.
Some rare functions are only useful on specific systems and aren't
defined at all on others; these do not appear anywhere in the
system-independent source code or makefiles (including the 'generic'
directory), only in the system-dependent 'Makefile' in the specific
system's subdirectory.
If you come across a file that is in one of the main source
directories ('string', 'stdio', etc.), and you want to write a machine-
or operating system-dependent version of it, move the file into
'sysdeps/generic' and write your new implementation in the appropriate
system-specific subdirectory. Note that if a file is to be
system-dependent, it *must not* appear in one of the main source
There are a few special files that may exist in each subdirectory of
A makefile for this machine or operating system, or class of
machine or operating system. This file is included by the library
makefile 'Makerules', which is used by the top-level makefile and
the subdirectory makefiles. It can change the variables set in the
including makefile or add new rules. It can use GNU 'make'
conditional directives based on the variable 'subdir' (see above)
to select different sets of variables and rules for different
sections of the library. It can also set the 'make' variable
'sysdep-routines', to specify extra modules to be included in the
library. You should use 'sysdep-routines' rather than adding
modules to 'routines' because the latter is used in determining
what to distribute for each subdirectory of the main source tree.
Each makefile in a subdirectory in the ordered list of
subdirectories to be searched is included in order. Since several
system-dependent makefiles may be included, each should append to
'sysdep-routines' rather than simply setting it:
sysdep-routines := $(sysdep-routines) foo bar
This file contains the names of new whole subdirectories under the
top-level library source tree that should be included for this
system. These subdirectories are treated just like the
system-independent subdirectories in the library source tree, such
as 'stdio' and 'math'.
Use this when there are completely new sets of functions and header
files that should go into the library for the system this
subdirectory of 'sysdeps' implements. For example,
'sysdeps/unix/inet/Subdirs' contains 'inet'; the 'inet' directory
contains various network-oriented operations which only make sense
to put in the library on systems that support the Internet.
This file is a shell script fragment to be run at configuration
time. The top-level 'configure' script uses the shell '.' command
to read the 'configure' file in each system-dependent directory
chosen, in order. The 'configure' files are often generated from
'' files using Autoconf.
A system-dependent 'configure' script will usually add things to
the shell variables 'DEFS' and 'config_vars'; see the top-level
'configure' script for details. The script can check for '--with-PACKAGE'
options that were passed to the top-level 'configure'. For an
option '--with-PACKAGE=VALUE' 'configure' sets the shell variable 'with_PACKAGE'
(with any dashes in PACKAGE converted to underscores) to VALUE; if
the option is just '--with-PACKAGE' (no argument), then it sets 'with_PACKAGE'
to 'yes'.
This file is an Autoconf input fragment to be processed into the
file 'configure' in this subdirectory. *Note
(, for a description of Autoconf. You
should write either 'configure' or '', but not both.
The first line of '' should invoke the 'm4' macro
'GLIBC_PROVIDES'. This macro does several 'AC_PROVIDE' calls for
Autoconf macros which are used by the top-level 'configure' script;
without this, those macros might be invoked again unnecessarily by

A GNU configuration name has three parts: the CPU type, the
manufacturer's name, and the operating system. 'configure' uses these
to pick the list of system-dependent directories to look for. If the
'--nfp' option is _not_ passed to 'configure', the directory
'MACHINE/fpu' is also used. The operating system often has a "base
operating system"; for example, if the operating system is 'Linux', the
base operating system is 'unix/sysv'. The algorithm used to pick the
list of directories is simple: 'configure' makes a list of the base
operating system, manufacturer, CPU type, and operating system, in that
order. It then concatenates all these together with slashes in between,
to produce a directory name; for example, the configuration 'i686-linux-gnu'
results in 'unix/sysv/linux/i386/i686'. 'configure' then tries removing
each element of the list in turn, so 'unix/sysv/linux' and 'unix/sysv'
are also tried, among others. Since the precise version number of the
operating system is often not important, and it would be very
inconvenient, for example, to have identical 'irix6.2' and 'irix6.3'
directories, 'configure' tries successively less specific operating
system names by removing trailing suffixes starting with a period.
As an example, here is the complete list of directories that would be
tried for the configuration 'i686-linux-gnu' (with the 'crypt' and
'linuxthreads' add-on):
Different machine architectures are conventionally subdirectories at
the top level of the 'sysdeps' directory tree. For example, 'sysdeps/sparc'
and 'sysdeps/m68k'. These contain files specific to those machine
architectures, but not specific to any particular operating system.
There might be subdirectories for specializations of those
architectures, such as 'sysdeps/m68k/68020'. Code which is specific to
the floating-point coprocessor used with a particular machine should go
in 'sysdeps/MACHINE/fpu'.
There are a few directories at the top level of the 'sysdeps'
hierarchy that are not for particular machine architectures.
As described above (*note Porting::), this is the subdirectory that
every configuration implicitly uses after all others.
This directory is for code using the IEEE 754 floating-point
format, where the C type 'float' is IEEE 754 single-precision
format, and 'double' is IEEE 754 double-precision format. Usually
this directory is referred to in the 'Implies' file in a machine
architecture-specific directory, such as 'm68k/Implies'.
This directory contains an implementation of a mathematical library
usable on platforms which use IEEE 754 conformant floating-point
This is a special case. Ideally the code should be in
'sysdeps/i386/fpu' but for various reasons it is kept aside.
This directory contains implementations of things in the library in
terms of POSIX.1 functions. This includes some of the POSIX.1
functions themselves. Of course, POSIX.1 cannot be completely
implemented in terms of itself, so a configuration using just
'posix' cannot be complete.
This is the directory for Unix-like things. *Note Porting to
Unix::. 'unix' implies 'posix'. There are some special-purpose
subdirectories of 'unix':
This directory is for things common to both BSD and System V
release 4. Both 'unix/bsd' and 'unix/sysv/sysv4' imply
This directory is for 'socket' and related functions on Unix
systems. 'unix/inet/Subdirs' enables the 'inet' top-level
subdirectory. 'unix/common' implies 'unix/inet'.
This is the directory for things based on the Mach microkernel from
CMU (including GNU/Hurd systems). Other basic operating systems
(VMS, for example) would have their own directories at the top
level of the 'sysdeps' hierarchy, parallel to 'unix' and 'mach'.

D.2.2 Porting the GNU C Library to Unix Systems
Most Unix systems are fundamentally very similar. There are variations
between different machines, and variations in what facilities are
provided by the kernel. But the interface to the operating system
facilities is, for the most part, pretty uniform and simple.
The code for Unix systems is in the directory 'unix', at the top
level of the 'sysdeps' hierarchy. This directory contains
subdirectories (and subdirectory trees) for various Unix variants.
The functions which are system calls in most Unix systems are
implemented in assembly code, which is generated automatically from
specifications in files named 'syscalls.list'. There are several such
files, one in 'sysdeps/unix' and others in its subdirectories. Some
special system calls are implemented in files that are named with a
suffix of '.S'; for example, '_exit.S'. Files ending in '.S' are run
through the C preprocessor before being fed to the assembler.
These files all use a set of macros that should be defined in
'sysdep.h'. The 'sysdep.h' file in 'sysdeps/unix' partially defines
them; a 'sysdep.h' file in another directory must finish defining them
for the particular machine and operating system variant. See
'sysdeps/unix/sysdep.h' and the machine-specific 'sysdep.h'
implementations to see what these macros are and what they should do.
The system-specific makefile for the 'unix' directory
('sysdeps/unix/Makefile') gives rules to generate several files from the
Unix system you are building the library on (which is assumed to be the
target system you are building the library _for_). All the generated
files are put in the directory where the object files are kept; they
should not affect the source tree itself. The files generated are
'ioctls.h', 'errnos.h', 'sys/param.h', and 'errlist.c' (for the 'stdio'
section of the library).

* PowerPC:: Facilities Specific to the PowerPC Architecture

File:, Node: PowerPC, Up: Platform
E.1 PowerPC-specific Facilities
Facilities specific to PowerPC that are not specific to a particular
operating system are declared in 'sys/platform/ppc.h'.
-- Function: uint64_t __ppc_get_timebase (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Read the current value of the Time Base Register.
The "Time Base Register" is a 64-bit register that stores a
monotonically incremented value updated at a system-dependent
frequency that may be different from the processor frequency. More
information is available in 'Power ISA 2.06b - Book II - Section
'__ppc_get_timebase' uses the processor's time base facility
directly without requiring assistance from the operating system, so
it is very efficient.
-- Function: uint64_t __ppc_get_timebase_freq (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Unsafe init | AS-Unsafe corrupt:init | AC-Unsafe
corrupt:init | *Note POSIX Safety Concepts::.
Read the current frequency at which the Time Base Register is
This frequency is not related to the processor clock or the bus
clock. It is also possible that this frequency is not constant.
More information is available in 'Power ISA 2.06b - Book II -
Section 5.2'.
The following functions provide hints about the usage of resources
that are shared with other processors. They can be used, for example,
if a program waiting on a lock intends to divert the shared resources to
be used by other processors. More information is available in 'Power
ISA 2.06b - Book II - Section 3.2'.
-- Function: void __ppc_yield (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Provide a hint that performance will probably be improved if shared
resources dedicated to the executing processor are released for use
by other processors.
-- Function: void __ppc_mdoio (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Provide a hint that performance will probably be improved if shared
resources dedicated to the executing processor are released until
all outstanding storage accesses to caching-inhibited storage have
been completed.
-- Function: void __ppc_mdoom (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Provide a hint that performance will probably be improved if shared
resources dedicated to the executing processor are released until
all outstanding storage accesses to cacheable storage for which the
data is not in the cache have been completed.
-- Function: void __ppc_set_ppr_med (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Set the Program Priority Register to medium value (default).
The "Program Priority Register" (PPR) is a 64-bit register that
controls the program's priority. By adjusting the PPR value the
programmer may improve system throughput by causing the system
resources to be used more efficiently, especially in contention
situations. The three unprivileged states available are covered by
the functions '__ppc_set_ppr_med' (medium - default),
'__ppc_set_ppc_low' (low) and '__ppc_set_ppc_med_low' (medium low).
More information available in 'Power ISA 2.06b - Book II - Section
-- Function: void __ppc_set_ppr_low (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Set the Program Priority Register to low value.
-- Function: void __ppc_set_ppr_med_low (void)
Preliminary: | MT-Safe | AS-Safe | AC-Safe | *Note POSIX Safety
Set the Program Priority Register to medium low value.

'sysdeps/ieee754/dbl-64' subdirectory) come from the IBM Accurate
Mathematical Library, contributed by IBM.
* Many of the IA64 math functions are taken from a collection of
"Highly Optimized Mathematical Functions for Itanium" that Intel
makes available under a free license; see the file 'LICENSES' for

Appendix G Free Software Needs Free Documentation
The biggest deficiency in the free software community today is not in
the software--it is the lack of good free documentation that we can
include with the free software. Many of our most important programs do
not come with free reference manuals and free introductory texts.
Documentation is an essential part of any software package; when an
important free software package does not come with a free manual and a
free tutorial, that is a major gap. We have many such gaps today.
Consider Perl, for instance. The tutorial manuals that people
normally use are non-free. How did this come about? Because the
authors of those manuals published them with restrictive terms--no
copying, no modification, source files not available--which exclude them
from the free software world.
That wasn't the first time this sort of thing happened, and it was
far from the last. Many times we have heard a GNU user eagerly describe
a manual that he is writing, his intended contribution to the community,
only to learn that he had ruined everything by signing a publication
contract to make it non-free.
Free documentation, like free software, is a matter of freedom, not
price. The problem with the non-free manual is not that publishers
charge a price for printed copies--that in itself is fine. (The Free
Software Foundation sells printed copies of manuals, too.) The problem
is the restrictions on the use of the manual. Free manuals are
available in source code form, and give you permission to copy and
modify. Non-free manuals do not allow this.
The criteria of freedom for a free manual are roughly the same as for
free software. Redistribution (including the normal kinds of commercial
redistribution) must be permitted, so that the manual can accompany
every copy of the program, both on-line and on paper.
Permission for modification of the technical content is crucial too.
When people modify the software, adding or changing features, if they
are conscientious they will change the manual too--so they can provide
accurate and clear documentation for the modified program. A manual
that leaves you no choice but to write a new manual to document a
changed version of the program is not really available to our community.
Some kinds of limits on the way modification is handled are
acceptable. For example, requirements to preserve the original author's
copyright notice, the distribution terms, or the list of authors, are
ok. It is also no problem to require modified versions to include
notice that they were modified. Even entire sections that may not be
deleted or changed are acceptable, as long as they deal with
nontechnical topics (like this one). These kinds of restrictions are
acceptable because they don't obstruct the community's normal use of the
However, it must be possible to modify all the _technical_ content of
the manual, and then distribute the result in all the usual media,
through all the usual channels. Otherwise, the restrictions obstruct
the use of the manual, it is not free, and we need another manual to
replace it.
Please spread the word about this issue. Our community continues to
lose manuals to proprietary publishing. If we spread the word that free
software needs free reference manuals and free tutorials, perhaps the
next person who wants to contribute by writing documentation will
realize, before it is too late, that only free manuals contribute to the
free software community.
If you are writing documentation, please insist on publishing it
under the GNU Free Documentation License or another free documentation
license. Remember that this decision requires your approval--you don't
have to let the publisher decide. Some commercial publishers will use a
free license if you insist, but they will not propose the option; it is
up to you to raise the issue and say firmly that this is what you want.
If the publisher you are dealing with refuses, please try other
publishers. If you're not sure whether a proposed license is free,
write to <>.
You can encourage commercial publishers to sell more free, copylefted
manuals and tutorials by buying them, and particularly by buying copies
from the publishers that paid for their writing or for major
improvements. Meanwhile, try to avoid buying non-free documentation at
all. Check the distribution terms of a manual before you buy it, and
insist that whoever seeks your business must respect your freedom.
Check the history of the book, and try reward the publishers that have
paid or pay the authors to work on it.
The Free Software Foundation maintains a list of free documentation
published by other publishers, at

Appendix H GNU Lesser General Public License
Version 2.1, February 1999
Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts
as the successor of the GNU Library Public License, version 2, hence the
version number 2.1.]
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public Licenses are
intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to
make sure the software is free for all its users.
This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
specially designated software--typically libraries--of the Free Software
Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You can use it too,
but we suggest you first think carefully about whether this license or
the ordinary General Public License is the better strategy to use in any
particular case, based on the explanations below.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of it
in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do these
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide
complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling it.
And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that there
is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is modified
by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know that what they
have is not the original version, so that the original author's
reputation will not be affected by problems that might be introduced by
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that any
patent license obtained for a version of the library must be consistent
with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and is
quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use this
license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries
into non-free programs.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary
General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the entire
combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General Public
License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with the
We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
does _Less_ to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less of
an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages are
the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
special circumstances.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it
becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be
allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free library
does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this case,
there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free software
only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of free
software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free
programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU operating system,
as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is linked
with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program
using a modified version of the Library.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference between a
"work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The
former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
be combined with the library in order to run.
0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms
of this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
Each licensee is addressed as "you".
A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
(which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
which has been distributed under these terms. A "work based on the
Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
translated straightforwardly into another language. (Hereinafter,
translation is included without limitation in the term
"Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For a library, complete source code
means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the library.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are
not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running a program using the Library is not restricted, and
output from such a program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use of
the Library in a tool for writing it). Whether that is true
depends on what the Library does and what the program that uses the
Library does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep
intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the
absence of any warranty; and distribute a copy of this License
along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange
for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of
it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a. The modified work must itself be a software library.
b. You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
c. You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
d. If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or
a table of data to be supplied by an application program that
uses the facility, other than as an argument passed when the
facility is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to
ensure that, in the event an application does not supply such
function or table, the facility still operates, and performs
whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots
has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
application-supplied function or table used by this function
must be optional: if the application does not supply it, the
square root function must still compute square roots.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Library, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate
works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply
to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But
when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a
work based on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on
the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees
extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part
regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or
contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the
intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of
derivative or collective works based on the Library.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
Library with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a
volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other
work under the scope of this License.
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library. To
do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License,
so that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License,
version 2, instead of to this License. (If a newer version than
version 2 of the ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared,
then you can specify that version instead if you wish.) Do not
make any other change in these notices.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to
all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the
Library into a program that is not a library.
4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or derivative
of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with
the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must
be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
medium customarily used for software interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy
the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled
or linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such
a work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because
it contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses
the library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.
Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header
file that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may
be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is
not. Whether this is true is especially significant if the work
can be linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a
library. The threshold for this to be true is not precisely
defined by law.
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a
derivative work. (Executables containing this object code plus
portions of the Library will still fall under Section 6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section
6. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or link
a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a work
containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work under
terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit modification
of the work for the customer's own use and reverse engineering for
debugging such modifications.
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered
by this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the
work during execution displays copyright notices, you must include
the copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a
reference directing the user to the copy of this License. Also,
you must do one of these things:
a. Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
machine-readable source code for the Library including
whatever changes were used in the work (which must be
distributed under Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is
an executable linked with the Library, with the complete
machine-readable "work that uses the Library", as object code
and/or source code, so that the user can modify the Library
and then relink to produce a modified executable containing
the modified Library. (It is understood that the user who
changes the contents of definitions files in the Library will
not necessarily be able to recompile the application to use
the modified definitions.)
b. Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run
time a copy of the library already present on the user's
computer system, rather than copying library functions into
the executable, and (2) will operate properly with a modified
version of the library, if the user installs one, as long as
the modified version is interface-compatible with the version
that the work was made with.
c. Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least
three years, to give the same user the materials specified in
Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of
performing this distribution.
d. If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the
above specified materials from the same place.
e. Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special
exception, the materials to be distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of
the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
component itself accompanies the executable.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you
cannot use both them and the Library together in an executable that
you distribute.
7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
Library side-by-side in a single library together with other
library facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such
a combined library, provided that the separate distribution of the
work based on the Library and of the other library facilities is
otherwise permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
a. Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the
Sections above.
b. Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same
8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the
Library except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate
your rights under this License. However, parties who have received
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full
9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify
or distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions
are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.
Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Library (or any work
based on the Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License
to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
distributing or modifying the Library or works based on it.
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the
