To extend a little what Tomas and Andreas said: I think it is not so very useful to look at the generated native ASM code, as it more or less maps 1:1 to the PicoLisp assembly, and the latter is more readable. Still, you can easily disassemble the executable: $ objdump -S bin/picolisp |view - When looking at the sources with 'vi', e.g. extending Andreas' example $ pil + : (vi 'vi) you can navigate by moving the cursor to some identifier and hit Shift-K. Then vi will jump to *that* source. This will give access to all Lisp and ASM code reachable from that point. In case of the 'vi' code above, you may press Shift-K on 'call', then move down to 'execArgsE_SXZ' and press Shift-K again With Shift-Q you can pop back. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:email@example.com?subject=Unsubscribe
