Chapter 6
Installing Glibc-2.2.5
Library Files

libnsl, libnsl_p

    libnsl is the network services library.


libnss_compat, libnss_dns, libnss_files, libnss_hesiod, libnss_nis,

    The basic idea is to put the implementation of the different

    1. Contributors can add new services without adding them to GNU C
    2. The modules can be updated separately.
    3. The C library image is smaller.

         ^^^^^^^ add the _p to the second one

    Contains code for "standard" functions used in
    many different unix untilities.
