bintrans is a dynamic binary translator. That means it runs programs
on architectures they were not compiled for. It does this by
dynamically translating the machine code of the programs to be run to
machine code for the native architecture.
Currently, bintrans features translators from i386 to PowerPC and from
PowerPC to Alpha. It only supports Linux binaries.
bintrans is still in its early development stages, so don't expect it
to run Mozilla. However, it already runs SPECINT95 benchmarks and a
few small X applications.
