That's been a lot of silence, hasn't it?
I had thought that we would now be compatible with BSD/OS ELF, so to
check it I dragged out my BSD/OS 3.0 CD-ROMs, which I thought
contained ELF binaries, but what I saw was:
/cdrom/7/bin/[: Infocom game data (Z-machine 8, Release 0,
/cdrom/7/bin/bash: BSD/OS i386 compact demand paged executable (uses shared libs)
/cdrom/7/bin/cat: Infocom game data (Z-machine 8, Release 0,
/cdrom/7/bin/chmod: Infocom game data (Z-machine 8, Release 0,
They definitely contain no ELF string. What are these things? Is
that what you have?
