Has any one any idea how can we reduce the size of standard libc, as it has to be used on system with very less memory...

    Have you tried µClibc?

    How about dietlibc? If I remember correctly it's smaller than uClibc. Any reason why you want something smaller than uClibc? I honestly don't think you can get smaller without loosing major functionality.

    Thankx bidi,
    Actually, I have to fit (application code + kernel ) in 4MB flash from 8MB, so on analysis of root filesytem I found uclibc is taking too much of space in filesystem, so am looking for some other version of uclibc with smaller size.
