Ooops.  Forgot the discuss-gnustep breaks the reply button.

Begin forwarded message:

Foundation provides an abstraction over the underlying platform. If you wanted to remove the dependency on libc (which is the standard way of providing this in C), what would you replace it with?

Also, be aware that even if you did remove libc dependencies (and since libc handles system calls, you would either add a kernel dependency or have to implement your own kernel) then you will still likely have the libc dependency dependency pulled in from all Objective-C programs; Objective-C is a pure superset of C, and pretty much all nontrivial C programs require libc.

Perhaps you could explain the problem you are trying to solve that you think removing the libc dependency would help with?
