The Machine Emulator, or tme for short, provides a general-purpose framework for computer emulation. The goal is to create a large library of modules, each emulating a specific computer chip, or bus, or board, etc. These modules offer standard interfaces that allow you to connect them together to create a whole machine emulation with a minimum of effort.
While these assembled machine emulations will likely never be as fast as a single program designed from the beginning to emulate a specific machine, the standard module interfaces should be reasonably fast. Even though the best abstract interfaces still introduce overhead and can't always express certain optimization hints, reusability will always save a lot of development time, and performance problems can be addressed by faster hardware.
What's New in This Release:
· This release can emulate a Sun 2/120 running NetBSD, a Sun 2/120 running NetBSD, a Sun 3/150 running NetBSD, and a SPARCstation 2 running NetBSD or SunOS 4.1.4 (aka Solaris 1.1.2).
