I am wanting to port over an application that is currently dependent on glibc 2.6.
Is glibc 2.6 installed on the BlackBerry 10.2.1 devices? Is there documentation that lists the installed libraries and versions which are available out of the box on the BlackBerry 10 devices?
Is it possible for me to bundle this library into my Web Works application, or does it need to be a Native app?
Thanks for your time.

I suppose you have a couple options.
1. Write a Native extension which utilizes this, then incorporate that into your WebWorks project. ( https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentati
2. Build a Native app.

Thanks for getting back to me on this question.
The application that I am attempting to convert is a C application that run as a server, and I was hoping to use Web Works to provide a UI to it, but it requires the glibc 2.6 version.
Do you know if the BlackBerry 10 devices come with glibc installed and also the version?

Spoke to one of the folks on the Native development team and they said that BB10 has your choice of dinkumware libc/libc++ (cascades uses this) or the GNU libc/libc++ (aka glibc). I'm not sure which version it is, will follow up when I track that down.
