difference between linux kernel headers and glibc


I know most user-space programs use /usr/include for libraries.

When/Who/How are linux kernel headers used?i know these are installed in /usr/src/... .

What is the difference between them?

kernel headers used to build the kernel itself and modules. user-space programs use /usr/include
