11 <title>General Libraries</title>
12
13 <para>
14 Libraries contain code which is often required by more than
15 one program. This has the advantage that each program doesn't need to
16 duplicate code (and risk introducing bugs), it just has to call
17 functions from the libraries installed on the system. The most obvious
18 example of a set of libraries is <application>Glibc</application> which is
19 installed during the LFS book. This contains all of the
20 <application>C</application> library functions which programs use.
21 </para>
22
23 <para>
24 There are two types of libraries: static and shared. Shared libraries
25 (usually <filename>libXXX.so</filename>) are loaded into memory from the
26 shared copy at runtime (hence the name). Static libraries (<filename>
27 libXXX.a</filename>) are actually linked into the program executable file
28 itself, thus making the program file larger. Quite often, you will find
29 both static and shared copies of the same library on your system.
30 </para>
31
32 <para>
33 Generally, you only need to install libraries when you are
34 installing software that needs the functionality they supply. In
35 the BLFS book, each package is presented with a list of (known)
36 dependencies. Thus, you can figure out which libraries you need to have
37 before installing that program. If you are installing something without
38 using BLFS instructions, usually the <filename>README</filename> or
39 <filename>INSTALL</filename> file will contain
40 details of the program's requirements.
41 </para>
42
43 <para>
44 There are certain libraries which nearly <emphasis>everyone</emphasis> will
45 need at some point. In this chapter these and some others are listed and
46 it is explained why you may want to install them.
