ll: Linux_Logo in assembly language

latest version is 0.47

27 Architectures, Smallest Linux executable is 905 bytes! (on crisv32)



This is a port of my linux_logo program to use raw assembly language. By using assembly and syscalls, you can have extremely fast and small binaries that don't use libc at all!

So far I have 6502, 8086, alpha, arm, arm_thumb, arm_thumb2, arm64, avr32, crisv32, ia64, m68k, m88k, microblaze, mips, parisc, pdp-11, ppc, RiSC, s390, sh3, sparc, vax, x86, x86_64, x86_x32, and z80 versions. Partial support for 8051, mips16, 65c816.

If you have an unsupported architecture and will be willing to give me a shell account on your machine, let me know. It would be great if every Linux-supported architecture had its own assembly version of linux_logo.
