Interface:

LIBC Next (or LIBCn, for short) is an attempt to provide an implementation of the C runtime library which is suitable for porting Unix and Linux applications to the OS/2 Operating System using the GCC compiler. LIBC Next is heavily based on the kLIBC project.

A fork with a separate repository became necessary because the ongoing OS/2 development directed by bitwise works mostly uses the GCC compiler which requires kLIBC, but the original kLIBC project is not actively maintained anymore.

LIBC Next uses its own DLL name and versioning scheme in order to clearly distinguish from kLIBC as required by its maintainer. It is, however, fully backward compatible with the original kLIBC library version 0.6.6 (both ABI- and API-wise) and may be used as a drop-in replacement.

Compatibility with earlier kLIBC releases is as good as that of kLIBC version 0.6.6 itself.

This software is distributed as RPM package.
