:        If by strace you mean tracing system call arguments and results,
: try using par(1).  (It does not help if you want to decode argument 
structures,
: however.)  Here is a sample:

He needs to decode args.  The idea was that strace groks most of the ioctls
in most OS's.  If we ever want to run little endian binaries on a big
endian kernel (which would be kinda cool) we need the arg decode.  David
wanted it for something else too.
