Dear fellows,

what about a mailing list "linux-animals-and-jokes"? It would hopefully
relieve me and other people of a lot of junk mail messages, like the ones
that you can find attached here (you all have seen such junk mail on this
list for quite a too long time, I guess).

Jokes are fine things, but with some limitations...

I'm sorry for this additional junk mail.

Giuseppe.

zlilo" or something :)

Penguin is there, number 4.

More animals will be needed at 2.10.0, so not for a while yet. OTOH,
we will need more verbs quite soon, at 1.3.100.

He didn't forget. Look at #4. A platypus? You wan to compare Linux to
such an ugly, oddball creature? Scary. Very, very scary.

Well, in the mean time, here's a version in C. It's nothing special -
just something I hacked up because I was bored :)
It grabs the version info out of linux/version.h instead of the Makefile
as I couldn't be bothered making it open up the Makefile & read in the
desired values.
Feel free to do whatever you want with it :)

Yeah, I should have used const char **'s for the strings, but for some
reason gcc was seg. faulting on them and I couldn't be bothered finding
out why. (gimme a break - it's 7:30am and I should be in.. what's that
place called? bed - that's it...long time no see ;)
