Obc produces an inline bytecode.

The first line of the executable reads:


The objx is a virtual machine and it reads the byte code that comes 
right after the LF behind the 'j' of 'obxj'. Try to inspect an 
executable with 'less'. 'cat' is even nicer but you do it on your own 
risk.. ;(

I attached the test1 executable for educational reasons. It will only 
run if you have the corresponding obxj program.

But then the mail did not appear in the list so I stripped the 
attachment again.. Have a look here:
