Are there any good C "standard" libraries which allow you to compile and keep your code?


Any good C libraries which have a permissive license to compile code and not share the code? Specifically, libs which covers basic data structures and algorithms?

Basically, the two I have so far are the Standard C Lib with the BSD License and the glibc with the LGPL license. Any others that others have used?


GLib and APR are decent general purpose C libs. I’m sure there are many more.


musl is MIT licensed.

It’s used by default on Alpine Linux and Void.


There’s a very nice curated list on github


I believe this is why lots of people are using Clang.
