Unless there's any practical reason, then in general we'd probably want to generate ELF executables. There's no pressing reason we particulaly need to stick to AIF, unless you have some tools that only work on them (say, !DDT: DeskDebug OTOH is getting ELF support).

I expect that adding AIF output to 'ld' wouldn't be especially hard, but it's extra effort. One of the things about ELF binaries is that the various tools also work on them as well as object files. This isn't the case for AIF.

  • Go-faster stripes for PC-format media access app
    Fat32Fs, by Jeffrey Doggert, lets Iyonix users read from and write to large FAT-formatted media, such as Flash-based removable media. Drobe reader Richard Ashbery got in touch to say the software is now much faster - it can read 100MB of data off a Sandisk 4GB CF Extreme 3 card in 59 seconds and write it back in 57 seconds, showing write speeds have improved by a factor of four.
