Interface:

Runtime libraries required for projects built with the new GCC compilers by Netlabs (a "runtime" is a set of low-level routines used by a compiler to invoke some of the behaviors of a runtime environment, by inserting calls to the runtime library into compiled executable binary).

The runtime is composed by several components:

  • the core contains the specific GCC compiler main libraries;
  • libraries containing the actual C language runtime functions and are divided by version/release(upgrade), i.e. "0.6.6-28" means "Twenty-eighth release of the C library, version 0.6.6";
  • the kLIBC Extension Library extends the functionality of the kLIBC library by adding a number of high demand features required by modern applications.

The above components are packed in two packages: libc and libcx. This runtime is now considered indispensable, as it is required by most of the latest versions of almost all opensource programs for OS/2 developed using C/C++ language.

OS/2 Warp 4.0 and above (including OS/2 Warp & WseB 4.5, MCP1/ACP1 & MCP2/ACP2) or eComStation 1.0 and above are required.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.
