| musl libc
|musl, pronounced like the word "mussel", is an MIT-licensed
|implementation of the standard C library targetting the Linux syscall
|API, suitable for use in a wide range of deployment environments. musl
|offers efficient static and dynamic linking support, lightweight code
|and low runtime overhead, strong fail-safe guarantees under correct
|usage, and correctness in the sense of standards conformance and
|safety. musl is built on the principle that these goals are best
|achieved through simple code that is easy to understand and maintain.
|The 1.1 release series for musl features coverage for all interfaces
|defined in ISO C99 and POSIX 2008 base, along with a number of
|non-standardized interfaces for compatibility with Linux, BSD, and
|For basic installation instructions, see the included INSTALL file.
|Information on full musl-targeted compiler toolchains, system
|bootstrapping, and Linux distributions built on musl can be found on
