16 <title>General Libraries</title>
18 <para>Libraries contain code which is often required by more than
19 one program. This has the advantage that each program doesn't need to
20 duplicate code (and risk introducing bugs), it just has to call
21 functions from the libraries installed on the system. The most obvious
22 example of a set of libraries is <application>Glibc</application> which is
23 installed during the LFS book. This contains all of the
24 <application>C</application> library functions which programs use.</para>
26 <para>There are two types of libraries: static and shared. Shared libraries
27 (usually <filename></filename>) are loaded into memory from the shared
28 copy at runtime (hence the name). Static libraries (<filename>libXXX.a
29 </filename>) are actually linked into the program executable file itself, thus
30 making the program file larger. Quite often, you will find both static and
31 shared copies of the same library on your system.</para>
33 <para>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
36 (known) dependencies. Thus, you can figure out which libraries you need to
37 have 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.</para>
42 <para>There are certain libraries which nearly <emphasis>everyone</emphasis>
43 will need at some point. In this chapter these and some others are listed and
44 it is explained why you may want to install them.</para>
