Small library of C functions that are not implemented elsewhere in the standard library set.
Small library of C functions that are not implemented elsewhere in the standard library set
libnih is roughly equivalent to other C libraries such as glib, except that its focus is on a small size and intended for applications that sit very low in the software stack, especially outside of /usr. It expressly does not reimplement functions that already exist in libraries ordinarily shipped in /lib such libc6, and does not do foolish things like invent arbitrary typedefs for perfectly good C types.
