    Summary: The GNU libc libraries
    Description: 
    The GNU C library defines all of the library functions that are specified
    by the ISO C standard, as well as additional features specific to POSIX
    and other derivatives of the Unix operating system, and extensions
    specific to the GNU system.
    
    The GNU libc is a set of standard libraries which are used by multiple
    programs on the system.  In order to save disk space and memory, as well
    as to make upgrading easier, common system code is kept in one place
    and shared between programs.
