A public Beta test version of FreePort Express is now available at:
FreePort Express is a binary translator (running on Alpha) which permits
you to convert your SunOS 4.1.x (same as Solaris 1.x) user executables
into Digital UNIX executables in minutes. FreePort Express runs under
Digital UNIX V3.0 or later, and is available FREE of charge (hence the name).
FreePort Express can handle the translation if your executable is:
is a valid a.out
Things it won't handle:
programs which rely upon SunOS file system hierarchy or file
formats where such differ from those in Digital UNIX
is a driver
How fast is the translated code?
At SunWorld '95, we showed some translated programs running
side by side on equally configured, similarly priced machines:
a SPARCstation 20/71, and an AlphaStation 400 4/233.
In all cases, the translated programs ran as fast as, or faster
than the originals programs did.
We hope you find it useful.
