Official Mirror
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.

purelibc (0.4+r960-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Snapshot from upstream SVN:
+ Fix: -nostartfile -> -nostartfiles option (FTBFS). (Closes: #625086)
+ Fix: wrong index on socketcalls.
+ Fixes (thanks to Alexander Block): wrong __NR constants, wrong
detection of Open # of args.
+ Fix: evecl, exevle, execlp args count was wrong.
+ fcntl -> fcntl64 conversion.
+ preadv/pwritev emulation. accept4.
+ raise added (glibc implements a useless cache for getpid! purelibc
solves also this problem)
+ Fix: negative hash values caused purelibc to write randomly in the
memory. This was the cause of random segfaults.
