The description is not informative at all:

Code:
mclib                                (   ) Local flag: Compile and install the libmc.so shared library (app-misc/mc)


What is the purpose of that library?

if you look here

use flag list

this library is linked to the midnight commander program

so the mclib might mean midnight commander library


if you are wondering what midnight commander is

i'm regular mc user, that's why the new mclib useflag made me curious. Info about it is nowhere to be found... very cryptic :wink:

Hello,

have you found a answer for this question?

I will unzip a 59 mb File. Now the mc needs about 1,5 hours on a core i7 with 32 gb RAM.

Other applications, possible "plugins" could link against the library (or dlopen it)
So it's a midnight commander lib, but not only for midnight commander itself
