the target would be either the Green hills INTEGRITY RTOS* or a as yet not 
written RTOS by another company. I think they will have malloc and whatnot 
so I think I should be able to get /somthing/ working (extern (C) void doit(){ 
printf("hello world\n");} )


thanks, I'll file that away in hopes that I find time to work on that befor 
bit rot gets to it. Hell, I might even be able to work it into my job and 
get paid for it!

* if you ever see INTEGRITY on a job sheat and don't see lots of zeros, keep 
looking. It's not fun to work with.
