Good question - I don't know.

It was written for R9X when X < C - and I handed it over to /// - the idea
was that it sooner or later would creep into the main distribution. 

It actually gets built in 

    /usr/local/lib/erlang/erts-5.3/bin

But I havn't tested to see if it still works

The windows bit definately does not work.

Try it and see.

The documentation on 

   http://www.sics.se/~joe/sae.html

Should still apply.

Let us know what happens.

As an aside I have made "tea-Bag" Erlang - this is a stripped R9C
(ie throw away as much as possible) and just keep just the stuff you need.

I need a minimal system to distribute to a few hundred machines (planet lab)
and have made teaBag for this purpose.

If there is any interest I can make it available.
