#define BITCOUNT(x) (((BX_(x)+(BX_(x)>>4)) & 0x0F0F0F0F) % 255)
#define BX_(x) ((x) - (((x)>>1)&0x77777777)
- (((x)>>2)&0x33333333)
- (((x)>>3)&0x11111111))

-- really weird C code to count the number of bits in a word

The Seventh Edition licensing procedures are, I suppose, still in effect,
though I doubt that tapes are available from AT&T. At any rate, whatever
restrictions the license imposes still exist. These restrictions were and
are reasonable for places that just want to run the system, but dont allow
many of the things that Minix was written for, like study of the source in
classes, or by individuals not in a university or company.

Ive always thought that Minix was a fine idea, and competently done.

As for the size of v7, wc -l /usr/sys/*/*.[chs] is 19271.

Operating-system software is the program that orchestrates all the basic
functions of a computer.

Software entities are more complex for their size than perhaps any other human
construct because no two parts are alike. If they are, we make the two
similar parts into a subroutine -- open or closed. In this respect, software
systems differ profoundly from computers, buildings, or automobiles, where
repeated elements abound.
