Another C Library optimized for Embedded Linux

Project maintained by olibc Hosted on GitHub Pages — Theme by mattgraham


The olibc is derived from bionic libc used in Android, which was initially derived from NetBSD libc. The development goal of olibc is expected to merge the enhancements done by several SoC vendors and partners, such as Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Linaro, etc., which is known to be the major difference from glibc, uClibc, and other traditional C library implementations. Typically, the code size of olibc runtime should be about 300 KB. For ARM target, olibc would benefit from ARMv7 specific features like NEON, Thumb-2, VFPv3/VFPv4, and latest compiler optimization techniques. Also, olibc is released under BSD License.
