About GLib
==========

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects
such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C,
portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as
an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

More information about GLib is available at:

http://www.gtk.org/

An installation guide for the GTK+ libraries, including GLib, can
be found at:
