The source files contain more details about program usage than the brief comments here.

Generic Programs

Some of these files load Iolib.a, which contains the "most used traps", those that were used in common for standard IO functions by the Amiga, Macintosh, and the defunct Minimum. It also includes some extra traps used by the Macintosh Micro Shell, and possibly by the Minimum, which are however not used by the programs in this section. Some of the files include a "Unix" option k=-1, which omits Iolib.a and supplies global labels appropriate for linking with an IOst.y assembled for any of the Vsys systems in IOst.a. That includes the Atari and the NeXT.

We believe, but have not tested, that it would be consistent with the functioning of the programs in this section to add the k=-1 option to those that do not have it. And that the option would function correctly with the three "most" systems as well. If so, Iolib.a could be retired in favor IOst.a.
