What components of libc are affected by this? I'm using libc 5
and I haven't run into anything bad so far. I wasn't aware that
libc 5 does anything having to do with exception handling.
Are you referring to problems specific to EH or just threading in
As far as C++ goes, I use the libstdc++ that came with EGCS.
If it throws exceptions, it will do so in a manner compatible
with code that was compiled using the same release of g++.
Maybe you are concerned that libc5 does not include Xavier
Leroy's LinuxThreads; I installed that separately out of the
