Knot-resolver is written for UNIX-like systems, mainly in C99.
Portable I/O is provided by libuv_.
Some 64-bit systems with LuaJIT 2.1 may be affected by
`a problem <https://github.com/LuaJIT/LuaJIT/blob/v2.1/doc/status.html#L100>`_
-- Linux on x86_64 is unaffected but `Linux on aarch64 is

.. [#] Known to be running (not exclusively) on FreeBSD, Linux and OS X.
.. Windows status??? Modules are not supported yet, as the PE/DLL loading is different. Library injection is working with ELF *(or Mach-O flat namespace)* only.
Windows systems might theoretically work without large changes,
but it's most likely broken and currently not planned to be supported.
