+This code implements a working Just-In-Time binary translator from the
+Beta [1] processor to the i386. It supports clock and keyboard
+interrupts, and correctly executes lab6.uasm, bench[1-4].uasm, and
+litmus.uasm, as well as Lab 8's operating system [2].

+This source is canonically available as a git tree from

+
+It should work on just about any modern Linux system; I've tested it
+on Athena and it works fine there.
+
+To run the self-tests, `make test'; To run the lab8 OS, `make
+run-lab8'.
+
+It alsos includes a somewhat hacked version of `uasm' from
+http://web.mit.edu/6.004/src/posix-src/uasm/, modified to deal with
+relative includes slightly better, and to support arbitrary-sized
+ROMs.
