another simulator -- mips/powerpc, etc

Hi all,

Karel is the king at finding simulators which look promising. :)

This one looks to have potential as it can run a lot of MIPS OSes and
a handful of ones for other targets...

Gene.. I cc'ed you since they list the Linksys.

Does anyone see any potential targets there?

It can emulate a wide range of processors (R2000, R2000A, R3000, R3000A, R6000, 4K, R4000, R4000PC, R4300, R4400, R4600, R4700, R8000, R10000, R12000, R14000, R5000, R5900, TX3920, TX7901, VR5432, RM5200, RM7000, RC32334, 5K, BCM4710, BCM4712, AU1000, AU1500, AU1100, SB1, SR7100) as well as a wide range of systems (ARC machines, Playstation 2, DECstation, Cobalt, Malta, MeshCube, hpcmips, Sony NeWS, SGI machin, Netgear box, Linksys WRT54G). However, the best supported machines are DECstation/DECsystem machines and MIPS Malta. "hpcmips", Sony NeWS, MeshCube, NetGear WG602, and Linksys WRT54G are only skeletons. This project is very active. It's homepage is''
