8 That's a first. A message forums that watches our list and doubles as an
9 interface to it.
11 Anyways, your answer is, unfortunately, no. I've discovered the usefulness of
12 ltrace many a time on x86, but ltrace is one of those unique programs that needs
13 some porting before it can run on a new architecture. There's documentation
14 within the ltrace source explaining what information it needs to properly run on
15 a new architecture, but I've discovered that this documentation is not very
16 clear on how to properly obtain the information and put it to use within ltrace.
18 As such, ltrace will have to simply sit in the dust bin of time until someone
19 with the skill gets an inclination to port it to mips (and sparc, which could
20 also use it).
