libc+syscalls to libc-only wrapper for libc functions

purelibc is an overlay library that converts the glibc, the GNU standard C library, into a pure library, i.e. a library that can upcall instead of running the system calls. With purelibc a process can trace (and virtualize) its own calls. It is used, for instance, by the UMView modules to support the recursion of virtual environments.

purelibc, along with UMView, is part of the View-OS project:

This package contains the library, that can be linked with an application or preloaded using the LD_PRELOAD environment variable.

Package version:0.4.1-1

purelibc (0.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * Bump to Standards-Version to 3.9.2:
    + Stop shipping .la files
  * Removed useless .dirs files

purelibc (0.4+r960-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Snapshot from upstream SVN:
    + Fix: -nostartfile -> -nostartfiles option (FTBFS). (Closes: #625086)


purelibc is not complete.

... a lot of secondary calls are still missing.
those tightly linked to the syscall routines in glibs must be reimplemented,
all the others are already diverted to purelibc.


purelibc is part of the View-OS Project.
