       elksemu - Embedded Linux Kernel Subset emulator

       /lib/elksemu program [arguments]

       Elksemu	is  a  program	that  allows 8086 ELKS programs to be run under Linux-i386. These
       programs can be compiled using the bcc(1) C compiler.

       It is not usual to invoke /lib/elksemu directly, either the simple patch or kernel  module
       distributed  with  it will cause the kernel to run /lib/elksemu with the correct arguments
       whenever the user tries to execute an ELKS executable directly.

       There are no flag options to elksemu, the first argument is the name of the program to run
       the rest are arguments that are passed to the Elks program.

       The  elksemu  program  is normally installed suid-root and in this event it is able to run
       execute only (chmod 111) elks executables and act correctly on the suid permission bits on
       those  executable. This may be considered a security hazard so elksemu does not have to be
       installed suid-root.

       bcc(1), as86(1), ld86(1)

       Elksemu is incomplete.

       The program may still have security bugs!
