Cool idea though. i am sure it is fast as hell. Something to keep an eye on. 2004-01-11 9:29 pm Anonymous The problem with those new OSs is than they are not documented. Where is the Software engineering phrase: Software = Program + Documentation 2004-01-11 10:12 pm Anonymous > The problem with those new OSs is than they are not documented. You’re right, the archive doesn’t contain any documentation. http://qdn.qnx.com does, however 😉 2004-01-12 12:06 pm Anonymous Software = Program + Documentation As a software engineer, I must say that this is an ideal case that never happens. *sigh* 2004-01-12 4:38 pm Anonymous Yes, the operating system itself is 100% NASM code. > but it needs lcc compiler to build Right. The only one C component left is a so-called Boot Time Linker (btl). Okay, it’s an essential component of RadiOS, so until I rewrite it (again), lcc is required for building the system.
