Appendix I Launching programs directly on GNU+Linux

This appendix describes an optional feature of Vicare: source and binary Scheme programs execution through the mechanism of the binfmt_misc Linux kernel module; it is available only on Unix–like platforms running the Linux kernel.

This appendix is derived from the original binfmt_misc documentation text file by Richard Guenther.

By default the installation of the required files is disabled; to enable it: at configuration time we must pass the --enable-binfmt option to the configure script.
