Announcing a DEC Pro 350 emulator

Announcing a DEC Pro 350 emulator

Post by Tarik Isan » Wed, 24 Dec 2003 14:39:12

(the following is a repost of an article that originally
went to comp.sys.dec.micro and alt.sys.pdp11)

I would like to announce the first public release of
Xhomer, a DEC Pro 350 machine emulator, based on the
PDP-11 core from (a somewhat old version of) SIMH.

The emulator was written for Linux/XFree86 systems,
but should work with other Unix/X11 systems as well.

Xhomer is able to boot stock installations of
P/OS 3.2 and Venix (other operating systems may also
work, but have not been tested yet).

The hard disk, floppy drives, display (standard video
and extended bitmap option), floating point processor,
real-time clock, keyboard, and printer and communications
ports are all emulated.

Source and binary downloads, as well as documentation,
may be obtained from:

Feedback is welcome.
