It’s heavily optimized for size and independent of libc or any other libraries, making it useful for mini-Linux distributions and rescue disks. There is also a separately distributed version written in C which supports some other Unix versions and CygWin. It is also possible to use regular expressions by using child processes like sed. e3 has a built in arithmetic calculator. The package now supports the ARM Risc CPU, amking it the first assembler program (on user layer) written for 2 different processors (Cisc vs Risc).
