I think you mean "glibc"

glibc is the C Library for your UNIX-based system. See more information here: http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html

I don't know how to check what version you have. If you check your distro's docs, however, that may tell you. That is the best I can do.

i think you mean glibc, its the standard c library, it contains the definitions of things like printf(), socket(), usleep(), etc... to find out your version, run it. /usr/libc.so.*
