Revision history   OpenPOWER Library

 Chapter 7. System Library Compatibility Requirements

The purpose of this chapter is to provide the requirements to be able to demonstrate OpenPOWER ELFv2 ABI compliance of an OpenPOWER system library. The system library is usually provided with an operating system or operating environment, but may in certain cases also provided as a separate stand-alone product. This chapter does not specify any particular test harness that needs to be used to demonstrate that those requirements are satisfied; it is expected that tests verifying the listed requirements are added to whatever test harness is already in use for development of the system library.
