I have also looked at the mips code, so it could also be based on that (I don't
have my code here, so I'm not sure). I haven't tried 'cat' yet, but C-c doesn't
work as far as I have tried, so rpc_trampoline is probably buggy.

You can get the powerpc manuals at www.mot-sps.com or www.chips.ibm.com.
