	Hi All,
	I've used Dataflex 2.3b and 3.01 with Xenix 386. Now I
want to move to Linux, and I would like to know if Linux is binary
compatible with Xenix 386, or in other words, I'd like to know
if dataflex will run under linux, and this way I would not loose
my applications.

Well, I put a loader for Xenix 386 binaries into the iBCS emulator a while 
back and it runs a simple hello world program ok. However for real work it 
*will* need more hacking before it works. I haven't got anything more
complex than a hello world Xenix program though :-(.
