hola! yep, more stuff ;)


CVS 20020516
============

Chapter 6
Installing Glibc-2.2.5
Library Files
Descriptions


libnsl, libnsl_p

    libnsl is the network services library.

-> http://ciac.llnl.gov/ciac/bulletins/i-072.shtml


libnss_compat, libnss_dns, libnss_files, libnss_hesiod, libnss_nis,
libnss_nisplus

    The basic idea is to put the implementation of the different
services offered to access the databases in separate modules. This has some$
    1. Contributors can add new services without adding them to GNU C
Library.
    2. The modules can be updated separately.
    3. The C library image is smaller.

-> http://www.gnu.org/manual/glibc-2.2.3/html_node/libc_580.html


libutil, libutil
         ^^^^^^^ add the _p to the second one

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