     235For the same reasons, \fBzzuf\fR will also not work with statically linked
     236binaries. Bear this in mind when using \fBzzuf\fR on the OpenBSD platform,
     237where \fBcat\fR, \fBcp\fR and \fBdd\fR are static binaries.
     238.PP
    235239Though best efforts are made, identical behaviour for different versions of
    236240\fBzzuf\fR is not guaranteed. The reproducibility for subsequent calls on
     
    242246according to the file format, to swap bytes, etc. More advanced fuzzing
    243247methods are planned.
     248.PP
     249\fBZzuf\fR will not work properly with applications using \fBgetc\fR() on
     250platforms where it is defined as a macro, such as OpenBSD and FreeBSD,
     251because it is unable to intercept calls to \fBgetc\fR().
    244252.PP
    245253As of now, \fBzzuf\fR does not really support multithreaded applications. The
