OK. I don’t use Windows®, but cbmuser wants to package fs-uae
for Debian which is said to be based on it.

That’s good. Then, we can _probably_ debug the TT issue with Hatari.

OK. Thanks for the formal (somewhat) analysis.

Right. I can make these from ARAnyM, now that I have discovered
its Byte Swap option… wish I had known that at OpenRheinRuhr…

FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
