F-Script Anywhere

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

For those of you who use F-Script Aywhere to inject f-script into your running application, you have probably noticed that F-Script Anywhere doesn’t work with the latest few releases of F-Script. I’ve updated F-Script Anywhere from Nicholas Riley’s top of tree, and fixed it so that it works properly. This currently only works with ppc binaries, but I’ll look into the work necessary to make F-Script Anywhere work on my intel mac as well next week. For the time being, download It uses mach_inject (which is what Nicholas Riley was last working on, he held off on release due to a few random crashes, however things are stable enough for my use on a regular basis).

Sparc CPU design now GPL

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It’s been too long since I last posted. In any case, I was really impressed today when I discovered that Sun has released their UltraSPARC T1 chip design (with multithreading design) under the GPL. You can actually download the entire chip design as a verilog RTL file, which is pretty neat, as well as downloading some other Sun internal tools and some tests. Although the idea for releasing the chip design is to allow developers to write better code for the chip, it would be neat if there were actually external modifications made that eventually made their way into a future revision of the silicon. Or kind of neat if someone else fabbed the same chip using the GPL design, although that seems pretty unlikely.
