The Linux Kernel Library is a project started by Octavian Purdila at University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest's Ixia sponsored laboratories, IXLABS.
The project's goal is to use the Linux kernel as a linkable library, so that the non-static functions from the kernel can be called from some external program.
A first application created was LKLFTPD which is an FTP daemon which reads files from an image disk using code from the kernel.
Famous quotes containing the words library and/or kernel:
“I view askance a book that remains undisturbed for a year. Oughtnt it to have a ticket of leave? I think I may safely say no book in my library remains unopened a year at a time, except my own works and Tennysons.”
—Carolyn Wells (18621942)
“We should never stand upon ceremony with sincerity. We should never cheat and insult and banish one another by our meanness, if there were present the kernel of worth and friendliness. We should not meet thus in haste.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
