    I thought the list might find this interesting - supposedly this can
    reduce the time it takes to load the sanitizer.

    Subject: Anomy 1.35 perlcc report

    Hello there

    I don't have the address of the mailing list handy, but you are welcome
    to forward this. I compiled the anomy sanitizer into an executable using


    The resulting executable file appears to work (although I didn't try the
    tests ... hmmm) However, when it is run from sendmail under linux (2.2.x
    kernel) certain messages cause it to become a zombie process (ie. it dies
    / exits and sendmail does not notice). This does not appear to happen
    with the uncompiled version.
