+# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
+# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
+# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|' on
+# the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must make
+# exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also customary to
+# leave one space after the ':'.

+glibc-debug: glibc-debug (GNU C libraries with debugging symbols)
+glibc-debug:
+glibc-debug: This package contains versions of the GNU C libraries with debugging
+glibc-debug: information. These are needed only if you wish to be able to step
+glibc-debug: through C library routines while debugging programs. Most debugging
+glibc-debug: efforts will not require these.
+glibc-debug: To use these libraries, set LD_LIBRARY_PATH when calling the debugger:
+glibc-debug: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/debug gdb <executable>
+glibc-debug:
+glibc-debug: Or, use this approach if you need to debug a setuid binary:
+glibc-debug: su user -c "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/debug gdb <executable>"
