Gtk+/Gnome Application Development
Prev Home Next


glib is the base of the Gnome infrastructure. It's a C utility library, providing routines to create and manipulate common data structures. It also addresses portability issues; for example, many systems lack the snprintf() function, but glib contains an implementation called g_snprintf() which is both guaranteed to exist on all platforms and slightly safer than snprintf() (it always NULL-terminates the target buffer).

Gnome 1.0 uses glib version 1.2 and works with any glib in the 1.2 series (1.2.1, 1.2.2, etc.). All glib versions beginning with 1.2 are compatible bug-fix releases.
