|glibc-doc | GNU C Library: Documentation | Mehr ...|
| Contains man pages for libpthread functions and the complete GNU C Library
ChangeLog. The GNU C Library Reference manual has been moved into
glibc-doc-reference for licensing reasons.
|glibc-source | GNU C Library: sources | Mehr ...|
| This package contains the sources and patches which are needed to
|libc6 | GNU C Library: Shared libraries | Mehr ...|
| Contains the standard libraries that are used by nearly all programs on
the system. This package includes shared versions of the standard C library
and the standard math library, as well as many others.
|libc6-dbg | GNU C Library: Libraries with debugging symbols | Mehr ...|
| Contains unstripped shared libraries.
This package is provided primarily to provide a backtrace with
names in a debugger, which makes it somewhat easier to interpret core
dumps. The libraries are installed in /usr/lib/debug and can be
used by placing that directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Most people will not need this package.
|libc6-dev | GNU C Library: Development Libraries and Header Files | Mehr ...|
| Contains the symlinks, headers, and object files needed to compile
and link programs which use the standard C library.
|libc6-dev-i386 | GNU C Library: 32bit development libraries for AMD64 | Mehr ...|
| Contains the symlinks and object files needed to compile and link programs
which use the standard C library. This is the 32bit version of the
library, meant for AMD64 systems.
|libc6-i386 | GNU C Library: 32bit shared libraries for AMD64 | Mehr ...|
| This package includes shared versions of the standard C
library and the standard math library, as well as many others.
This is the 32bit version of the library, meant for AMD64 systems.
|libc6-pic | GNU C Library: PIC archive library | Mehr ...|
| Contains an archive library (ar file) composed of individual shared objects.
This is used for creating a library which is a smaller subset of the
standard libc shared library. The reduced library is used on the Debian
boot floppies. If you are not making your own set of Debian boot floppies
using the `boot-floppies' package, you probably don't need this package.
|libc6-prof | GNU C Library: Profiling Libraries | Mehr ...|
| Static libraries compiled with profiling info (-pg) suitable for use
|locales | GNU C Library: National Language (locale) data [support] | Mehr ...|
| Machine-readable data files, shared objects and programs used by the
C library for localization (l10n) and internationalization (i18n) support.
This package contains the libc.mo i18n files, plus tools to generate
locale definitions from source files (included in this package). It
allows you to customize which definitions actually get
generated. This is a space-saver over how this package used to be,
with all locales generated by default. This created a package that
unpacked to an excess of 30 megs.
|locales-all | GNU C Library: Precompiled locale data | Mehr ...|
| This package contains the precompiled locale data for all supported locales.
A better alternative is to install the locales package and only select
desired locales, but it can be useful on a low-memory machine because some
locale files take a lot of memory to be compiled.
|nscd | GNU C Library: Name Service Cache Daemon | Mehr ...|
| A daemon which handles passwd, group and host lookups
for running programs and caches the results for the next
query. You should install this package only if you use
slow Services like LDAP, NIS or NIS+
