from the racks @ nerdlabs...

i'm sure y'all be dying to hear the results for sco openserver ;)

$ perl testall.pl
Format STDOUT redefined at testall.pl line 17.

yes, the sco box is called "cunts" - it was crash's idea :)

i had a lot of trouble with the makefile - starting with the fact that
openserver doesn't come with make :P

i am also half way to testing sys hostname long on HP-UX 10.2 + 11.0, 
AIX 4.2, IRIX 5.3. Stay tuned to find out how they go.

if there is anyone with VMS or OS/400 knowledge on list i could really 
do with some help getting these OS'es running.

scooter mentioned that someone already tested on Solaris, so i didn't
attempt that platform.

not sure if there is any interest in weird-ass OS'es - RISCOS, Plan9,
BeOS, Hurd, ...?

let me know
