libc 0.2.155

Raw FFI bindings to platform libraries like libc.
# libc - Raw FFI bindings to platforms' system libraries

[![GHA Status]][GitHub Actions] [![Cirrus CI Status]][Cirrus CI] [![Latest Version]][] [![Documentation]][] ![License]

`libc` provides all of the definitions necessary to easily interoperate with C
code (or "C-like" code) on each of the platforms that Rust supports. This
includes type definitions (e.g. `c_int`), constants (e.g. `EINVAL`) as well as
function headers (e.g. `malloc`).

This crate exports all underlying platform types, functions, and constants under
the crate root, so all items are accessible as `libc::foo`. The types and values
of all the exported APIs match the platform that libc is compiled for.

More detailed information about the design of this library can be found in its
[associated RFC][rfc].


## v0.3 Roadmap

The main branch is now for v0.3 which has some breaking changes.

For v0.2, please submit PRs to the `libc-0.2` branch instead.
We will stop making new v0.2 releases once we release v0.3 on

See the [tracking issue]( for details.

## Usage

Add the following to your `Cargo.toml`:

libc = "0.2"

## Features

* `std`: by default `libc` links to the standard library. Disable this
  feature to remove this dependency and be able to use `libc` in `#![no_std]`

* `extra_traits`: all `struct`s implemented in `libc` are `Copy` and `Clone`.
  This feature derives `Debug`, `Eq`, `Hash`, and `PartialEq`.

* `const-extern-fn`: Changes some `extern fn`s into `const extern fn`s.
  If you use Rust >= 1.62, this feature is implicitly enabled.
  Otherwise it requires a nightly rustc.

* **deprecated**: `use_std` is deprecated, and is equivalent to `std`.

## Rust version support

The minimum supported Rust toolchain version is currently **Rust 1.13.0**.
(libc does not currently have any policy regarding changes to the minimum
supported Rust version; such policy is a work in progress.) APIs requiring
newer Rust features are only available on newer Rust toolchains:

| Feature              | Version |
| `union`              |  1.19.0 |
| `const mem::size_of` |  1.24.0 |
| `repr(align)`        |  1.25.0 |
| `extra_traits`       |  1.25.0 |
| `core::ffi::c_void`  |  1.30.0 |
| `repr(packed(N))`    |  1.33.0 |
| `cfg(target_vendor)` |  1.33.0 |
| `const-extern-fn`    |  1.62.0 |

## Platform support

You can see the platform(target)-specific docs on [], select a platform you want to see.

for the platforms on which `libc` is guaranteed to build for each Rust
toolchain. The test-matrix at [GitHub Actions] and [Cirrus CI] show the
platforms in which `libc` tests are run.
