DESCRIPTION
       The function gnu_get_libc_version() returns a string that identifies the glibc version available on the system.

       The function gnu_get_libc_release() returns a string indicates the release status of the glibc  version  avail-

       int
       main(int argc, char *argv[])
       {
           printf("GNU libc version: %s\n", gnu_get_libc_version());
           printf("GNU libc release: %s\n", gnu_get_libc_release());
