Re: SmartDec with MIPS / SGI support.

I can mention that I've add libbfd support for file parsing so now it handles SGI IRIX ECOFF binaries correct. Try with 'fsn.COFF'

SmartDec with MIPS / SGI support.

Just to let you who are interested know about my project over here: https://github.com/nihilus/snowman/
I appreciate bug fixes and feedback... It works for O32, N32 and N64 ELF binaries at the moment. Planning to add an SGI ECOFF loader.

EPANOS

Anyone got EPANOS: https://github.com/drvink/epanos running except the author himself???
I'd love to see fsn ported to a modern Unix environment (like OS X).

Why did SGI use VxWorks???

Nowadays it id a well-known facts for enthusiastic SGI lovers that they used VxWorks (and even x86) for some works in their IRIX(!) development.

Does anyone have a rational description/idea why it was so?
