Program: Instructor 1.0
Author: David Goldsmith <daveg () ksrt org>
Summary: Instructor is a 32 bit instruction set auditor.
By sequentially executing every 32 bit op-code,
one can find instructions that might have adverse
effects on operating environments. For example,
Instructor was used to find the non-privileged
halt instruction <http://www.ksrt.org/adv9.html>.
For a description on how this program differs
from the 'crashme' program, please read the
comments at the top of the source file.
Disclaimer: Exercise extreme caution when running this
program since it may cause your system to
abruptly halt, panic, or reboot.
