February 5, 2011 Completed initial printf regression tests on ppc64, vaargs seems to be functional now. tcsh now builds for arm, i386, microblaze, ppc, ppc64, and x86_64. In QEMU user mode tcsh for arm, i386, ppc, and x86_64 runs and the “set” and “exit” commands work as expected. The ppc can run a few “ls” commands before core dump. The arm, i386, ppc64, and x86_64 can run one “ls” command and then hang. I suspect a SIGCHLD problem. The Start up under QEMU fails for microblaze. The ppc64 tcsh starts, but displays no prompt. The “set” command works, but the “exit” command core dumps.
