simh - multi-system emulator

Unread post by machinebacon »

Honestly, I have no freaking idea what to do with these - I just downloaded the package out of curiosity. Simh is an emulator for those 'really old' computers, like:

Code: Select all

altair     i1401    lgp    pdp4  swtp6800mp-a
altairz80  i1620    nova   pdp7  swtp6800mp-a2
eclipse    i7094    pdp1   pdp8  vax
gri        ibm1130  pdp10  pdp9  vax780
h316       id16     pdp11  s3
hp2100     id32     pdp15  sds
Yes, the PDP11 was very popular those days, as it was the minimum system to run old UNIX on.

Briefly:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev
mkdir simh && cd simh
wget -c http://simh.trailing-edge.com/sources/simhv39-0.zip
unp simhv39-0
make USE_NETWORK=1
# wait a few moments
cd BIN
ls

Please let me know what you made of these :) Really curious!
