44b0f39cbSRich Felkermusl, pronounced like the word "mussel", is an MIT-licensed
54b0f39cbSRich Felkerimplementation of the standard C library targetting the Linux syscall
64b0f39cbSRich FelkerAPI, suitable for use in a wide range of deployment environments. musl
74b0f39cbSRich Felkeroffers efficient static and dynamic linking support, lightweight code
84b0f39cbSRich Felkerand low runtime overhead, strong fail-safe guarantees under correct
94b0f39cbSRich Felkerusage, and correctness in the sense of standards conformance and
104b0f39cbSRich Felkersafety. musl is built on the principle that these goals are best
114b0f39cbSRich Felkerachieved through simple code that is easy to understand and maintain.
