Note: CPU-OS Simulator is a Microsoft Windows executable. As such it will not directly run under Linux or Mac operating systems. However, it is possible to run it on these systems using the Wine software or any suitable virtualization software. You will need a relatively fast machine with good primary memory size (preferably 8+ GBytes) as they tend to be resource hungry.

CPU-OS Simulator Virtual Machine

The following is the link to the source for the Virtual Machine (VM) that can run CPU-OS Simulator bytecode. The VM is coded in C and is thus portable across different platforms. It is provided in source form that shows how the CPU instructions are implemented.

To run the simulator code on console you need to compile the source using the simulator’s inbuilt compiler. You then need to save the generated bytecode; this is saved with the extension name .bin. To run the bytecode using the virtual machine enter the following line in a console window:

<name of the VM executable> r <name of the bytecode file>
