I design and work on GCC MELT (a high level domain specific language to ease development of GCC extensions, free software, GPLv3+).

I am an enthusiast of free software, and know quite well Linux

I think that high-level languages are important, and that declarative knowledge-based systems should be more used.

The command file did tell (it is not an error!) you what is your file. So now, unzip it!

Type in a terminal the command file imul.j: try also to run it using java imul.j; and install Linux on your laptop to learn it.

The OP could use chattr +i to make the deletion more difficult (on Ext3 or Ext4 filesystems), but root could always undo that.

Did you try running the qemu command (in some terminal)? Did you read the output of man qemu?

comment E138: Can't write viminfo file
Usually (absolute path to file) is not a file name. If it happens to be your filename, it cannot work (because you need to escape such spaces, and the parenthesis, for the sh run by system(command) ....)

I don't understand what is your command buffer before running system(command)

comment E138: Can't write viminfo file
You could have an overflow in sprintf so you should use snprintf; you should check -thru the debugger or by logging- what exact command you are running, and what is the return code given by system(command); indeed vi could fail and you should handle such failures....

comment linux ldd command cannot work
Wrong, ldd does not search $PATH (at least on Debian/Sid, with ldd (Debian EGLIBC 2.13-38) 2.13 given by ldd --version). For instance ldd sh fails, while /bin/sh exists and /bin is in my $PATH (and the ldd sh command is being run from my $HOME directory which does not have any sh file).

comment linux ldd command cannot work
Do you have good reasons to avoid the memcached provided by your distribution? Then you still should sudo aptitude build-dep memcached at first before configuring and building your own memcached (and that is a probable mistake for a newbie)..... And ldd does work (try ldd /bin/ls or ldd /bin/sh for example), it just needs the full file path....

comment linux ldd command cannot work
If you install the memcached package (e.g. with aptitude install memcached) from your distribution, it will take care of dependencies as well. Managing packages dependencies is the job of the package manager of your distribution. If you want to build memcached by yourself, you should care about the dependencies (e.g. with aptitude build-dep memcached etc....).

comment linux ldd command cannot work
Try ldd $(which memcached) instead. And learn much more about PATH. The ldd command does work, but expects the file path of some executable... You could try ldd /usr/bin/memcached if your memcached is inside /usr/bin/
