Re: [MiNT] glibc for m68k/mint?

Aren't there still archives of this list? These questions have been
asked and answered before. glibc is several times larger than mintlib,
and quite a bit slower. It also didn't exist when we first started
developing MiNT, gcc, and the associated tools. Perhaps people running
MiNT on fast 68K emulators today don't care so much, but even the
smallest program linked with glibc would eat up a sizable chunk of an
Atari ST's RAM...
Mark Duckworth napisa?(a):
Glibc depends heavily upon the linux kernel as far as I know. Without
modern kernel interfaces, no modern libc. We need virtual memory. I
thought you were working on that :-P
I don't think that dependency is so heavy - libc supports also Hurd
and some othere (don't remember now) systems. So it may be pretty
portable. Btw. it supports m68k out-of-the-box.
