Date: Sat, 1 Mar 2014 00:25:18 -0500 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...ifal.cx> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Updating libc comparison I'd like to think about doing some serious updates to the libc comparison soon. Some things that have come up which we should add: Rows: - Security features: relro and fortify, crypt hashes, maybe others - Source size in kloc: musl=75, uclibc=333, glibc=1188 - Number of files/kloc that are arch-specific (aka porting effort) - Dynamic linking timings Columns: - Bionic - klibc - Replace eglibc with glibc (eglibc is being discontinued) In addition, the uClibc and glibc tests should be re-run with the latest versions (I don't think dietlibc has a new version), and the specific version and parameters used should be documented. Dietlibc's arch support is also reportedly over-stated; this should be checked. Of these, the biggest project (and the one I've been reluctant to do myself because setting up a dev environment seems like such a pain) is testing Bionic. If anyone has advice on how to make this easy (i.e. avoiding the Android build system) or wants to do it for me, please let me know! :-) Rich
