OS4 shared object format: like Linux?

Subject: OS4 shared object format: like Linux?

Hello, I haven't posted here for a while.

I'm kicking around the idea of trying to get Rust to cross compile to OS 4 and then see about getting Wasmer to run on it. One dependency that seems to be hard to avoid is that the WASI ABI for Wasmer uses shared objects in a POSIX-style format. If there is a query capable symbol exporter for an OS 4 shared library, that might be another option.

Another hard-to-avoid dependency is that the Wasmer sandbox environment is strictly little-endian. This means that anything accessible outside of the sandbox will need to be endian swapped to interface to the OS.

That said, I haven't learned to program in Rust yet so don't get your hopes up of having a glut of software written for Wasmer at this time.
