The Code - Updated
Tuesday, August 19 2003 @ 01:37 PM EDT

There is a comment on Yahoo! Finance from a poster whose identity is unknown to me. Normally, that would mean I wouldn't mention it on Groklaw, as I have scrupulously avoided anything I couldn't evaluate and verify. But this is something I'd be delinquent not to report, I think, now that it's on the internet anyway and public. So I will just say that I am putting it up with a request that those who can appropriately evaluate it do so. Here is the message in full:
SCO's "proof". A joke.

  The code SCO finds offending:

Its location in Linux:
/usr/src/linux-2.4.20/arch/ia64/sn/io/ate_utils.c
And its heritage:
minnie.tuhs.org/UnixTree/V7/usr/sys/sys/malloc.c.html
Ok, SCO: This was easy. Now, show us the other many examples.
This is definitely one of those days I wish I were a programmer. Feedback, those of you who are?

UPDATE: Lots of analysis of this available now by Bruce Perens, and LWN and Slashdot. Thank you, Groklaw readers. You are, once again, amazing. I knew you'd come through, but I'm amazed at the speed.
