I have run into a runtime error as following. What is glibc? and how can I detect/fix it?

Detaching after fork from child process 20683.
page = /test/jy01sts.asp?sno=777442320&cno=25418112
*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x083910e0 ***
Program received signal SIGABRT, Aborted.
0x00abd7a2 in _dl_sysinfo_int80 () from /lib/

Thanks in advance.

    Accepted Solution

    glibc is the standard GNU C library.

    What this error reports is that there has been a memory corruption. So, you'll have to find which part of your code caused the memory corruption, and fix that.
