about="""
NetBSD/arc is a port of NetBSD to the [MIPS](http://www.mips.com) processor
based computers which comply wih the
[Advanced RISC Computing (ARC) specification](http://www.netbsd.org/docs/Hardware/Machines/ARC/)
put together by the Advanced Computing Environment (ACE) Consortium in the early
1990's, as an alternative to Intel-based PC's. 

This port originally started as NetBSD/pica port made by Per FogelstrÖm,
and supersedes it. This port is also based on efforts done in [OpenBSD/arc](http://www.openbsd.org/arc.html).

Earlier pre-ARC MIPS machines are supported by the [NetBSD/mipsco](ports/mipsco) port.

The portmaster is collecting detailed information on as many ARC implementation
variations as possible. An explanation of how to get internal details
[using Windows NT is available.](http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-mips/2000/02/19/0000.html)
