Library Table of Contents

This table lists all modules contained in the library, together with their status. The Needs glue? column indicates whether or not the module requires that define-safe-glue be available, and hence whether the library has to be compiled in order to use the library.

Here is a key to the general condition of modules, in increasing order of stability:
