RL.Gnu.LibC Wrapper

License: CC0 Workflow: CodeQL NuGet Version codecov


This currently very small project was made to wrap some Gnu libc functions to the dotnet-world. This library doesn't work on Windows.


to get the load averages:

using System;
using RL.Gnu;

namespace Console
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // there are different ways to retrieve the load averages.
            // 1. the classical c-way.
            double[] loadavg;
            var samples = LibC.getloadavg(out loadavg, 3);
            if (samples != -1) {
                Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2}", loadavg[0], loadavg[1], loadavg[2]);

            // 2. the dotnet-like-way.
            loadavg = LibC.GetLoadAverages();
            Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2}", loadavg[0], loadavg[1], loadavg[2]);
