10 Glibc Header File Substitutes

This chapter describes which header files contained in GNU libc but not specified by ISO C or POSIX are substituted by Gnulib, which portability pitfalls are fixed by Gnulib, and which (known) portability problems are not worked around by Gnulib.

The notation “Gnulib module: —” means that Gnulib does not provide a module providing a substitute for the header file. When the list “Portability problems not fixed by Gnulib” is empty, such a module is not needed: No portability problems are known. Otherwise, it indicates that such a module would be useful but is not available: No one so far found this header file important enough to contribute a substitute for it. If you need this particular header file, you may write to <bug-gnulib at gnu dot org>.
