    3 [wiki:kLIBC kLIBC] (formerly known as the [wiki:InnoTekLibc InnoTek LIBC]) is a C runtime library in which the coder is exploring [wiki:TheSingleUnixSpecification The Single Unix Specification] (SUS) and various *BSD, Sun and Linux interfaces used in 'portable' software. While implementing SUS completely and providing a great range of special BSD, Sun and Linux APIs is a kind of ultimate goal, the main focus is on what is '''interesting''' to play with and what is '''requested''' by porters using kLIBC.

    5 As an associated act, the tool chain ([wiki:GnuGcc GCC], [wiki:GnuBinutils Binutils], [wiki:Os2Emx EMX]) is also maintained as part of the project and usually release together with new [wiki:kLIBC kLIBC] releases.
     5[wiki:UnixPenthouseApartement kNIX] - also known as [wiki:UnixPenthouseApartement The Unix Penthouse Apartment] - is an associated act in which [wiki:kLIBC kLIBC] is put thru the ringer. [wiki:UnixPenthouseApartement kNIX] is an effort for creating a UNIX like environment on OS/2 (and later NT) but without kicking out drive letters and other DOSishness. Ports of all the fundamental elements of a *NIX system can be found in the kLIBC repository. Not all of these ports are maintained here, they are included in order to be able to build the kNIX foundation. ([wiki:GnuGcc GCC], [wiki:GnuBinutils Binutils], [wiki:Os2Emx EMX], [wiki:BsdAsh ash] and [wiki:BsdYacc yacc] are maintained here, in case you was wondering.) kNIX employs Gentoo Portage for building and maintaining the environment.
