What does a bus error exactly refer to on an intel type machine? I
thought bus errors referred strictly to "unaligned memory access"
(fetching words on halfword boundaries et al), which I understood to
be slow-but-legal on intel hardware.
This otherwise unremarkable language is distinguished by the
absence of an "S" in its character set; users must substitute
"TH". LITHP is said to be useful in protheththing lithtth.
