checkobj - check an object file to see whether it can be executed SYNTAX
checkobj [ -s ] [ -f ] [ -40 ] [ file ... ] DESCRIPTION
Checkobj attempts to determine whether the named files are valid executable binary files. It checks for size restrictions, including those due to the granularity of memory management on the PDP11. It is especially useful for overlaid object files, where there are a number of constraints. If a file is too large or improperly laid out, checkobj attempts to point out format changes that would allow the program to run. OPTIONS
Several options control the checks: -s Check for the use of separate I/D. If the file is separate executable, an error is flagged, and an appropriate way to load for a nonseparate machine is suggested if possible. -f Check for the use of floating point arithmetic without inclusion of the floating-point interpreter. -40 Combine the -s and -f options, to check for suitability for an 11/40-class PDP11. BUGS
The test for floating point is simple-minded. It is based on the definition of ``fltused'' by the C compiler and ``fptrap'' in the float- ing-point simulator. This test does not work if the object has been stripped. DIAGNOSTICS
The exit status is 0 if all named files are runnable with the specified options, nonzero otherwise. AUTHOR

trapov - trap and repair floating point overflow SYNOPSIS
subroutine trapov (numesg, rtnval) double precision rtnval DESCRIPTION
NOTE: This routine applies only to the older VAX 11/780's. VAX computers made or upgraded since spring 1983 handle errors differently. See trpfpe(3F) for the newer error handler. This routine has always been ineffective on the VAX 11/750. It is a null routine on the PDP11. This call sets up signal handlers to trap arithmetic exceptions and the use of illegal operands. Trapping arithmetic exceptions allows the user's program to proceed from instances of floating point overflow or divide by zero. The result of such operations will be an illegal floating point value. The subsequent use of the illegal operand will be trapped and the operand replaced by the specified value. The first numesg occurrences of a floating point arithmetic error will cause a message to be written to the standard error file. If the resulting value is used, the value given for rtnval will replace the illegal operand generated by the arithmetic error. Rtnval must be a double precision value. For example, ``0d0'' or ``dflmax()''. FILES
/usr/lib/libF77.a SEE ALSO
trpfpe(3F), signal(3F), range(3F) BUGS
Other arithmetic exceptions can be trapped but not repaired. There is no way to distinguish between an integer value of 32768 and the illegal floating point form. Therefore such an integer value may get replaced while repairing the use of an illegal operand. 4.2 Berkeley Distribution May 15, 1985 TRAPOV(3F)
