OLD-SUN3CVT(1) General Commands Manual OLD-SUN3CVT(1)
old-sun3cvt - convert large Sun-2 system executables to Sun-3 system
/usr/old/sun3cvt [ oldfile [ newfile ] ]
Note: This program is considered to be obsolete, and will not be dis-
tributed or supported in future Sun releases.
sun3cvt converts an old Sun-2 system program file (predating Sun
release 3.0) into a Sun-3 system executable file.
The default oldfile is a.out. The default newfile is sun3.out.
sun3cvt attempts to create a file of the same type (magic number).
However, for sharable-text files with less than 128kb of text, the new
file will not be sharable (since Sun-3 data segments must begin on
128kb boundaries). Also, most programs have some text in the data seg-
ment as a consequence of the new larger Sun-3 system page and segment
execve(2V) executes an old Sun-2 system program file, but the program's
text is not sharable. Old pure-text programs with text segments larger
than 128kb can be made sharable on machines running release 3.0 or sub-
sequent releases by using sun3cvt.
a.out default oldfile
sun3.out default newfile
