Sorry to bother the list with trivia -- I searched the kaffe
distribution, and the list archive, but couldn't find a FAQ entry
that covered them.
I'm considering porting kaffe to Sequent (Dynix/ptx V4.1.3, COFF
mode to be precise), but I'm at a loss as to where to start. Please
bear with my ridiculous questions until I get up to speed.
Is there a document (other than the source) describing the
architecture? A glossary (what's a 'trampoline', for instance)?
How will kaffe handle multi-threaded programs given that Sequent has
no support for kernel threads? I know I won't be able to run a
process across multiple CPUs, but I hope I won't be forced to yield()
I'm considering trying to port Sun's JDK, too (I'm actually
interested in RMI, but the JIT might persuade me to stay with
kaffe). Is anything I add to Kaffe tainted if I look at Sun's
Thanks in advance for your help.
