Post subject:  EASy68K running on Linux

I am studying at the university of hertfordshire ,uk. I noticed Prof Kelly studied there , as part of the first year cs&n (computer systems and networks) module, we learn assembly with the m68k chip set, we use the wism68 simulator, i cam across this project and was pleasantly surprised that its open source and there is a beta for linux.

I try the windows version on wine and see if it works..

Thanks for the update allix. I've had reports of other users successfully running EASy68K with wine.

P.S. I never studied at the University of Hertfordshire, but if they're teaching 68000 programming it must be a great school.

when i see the lecturer of this topic, i will mention easy68k to him, as i personally think its better because it has many features not on wism68 such as displaying the stack ,Conditional Macros,Direct memory editing/moving,Loads S-Record files etc...

In regard to education, i was looking at http://www.wickensonline.co.uk./msw-cv.html , which is from the page where the linux port is, that's properly someone else's Cv .....

A feature i would not mind seeing is the ability to reverse execution or move backwards and forwards throughout a programme

I too use easy68k perfectly with wine. the interface can get a bit jumbled up because of some font issue or other, but that's rather a fault of wine, and otherwise everything seems to work perfectly.

allix.. it was my CV you found! I was at Uni of Herts from 1988 - 1991 and they were teaching M68K then. From employers I have met since I have always had positive feedback from them with regard to employees with degrees from the Uni. of Herts.

I haven't been back in a long time. It never quite seemed the same when the computer centre had PCs instead of terminals however. That's just be getting old though!

easy68k of course works perfectly in a Windows XP VMWare instance under Linux.

Regards, Mark.

Note also that the Linux port contains the assembler only - the simulator has not and will not be ported (by me, anyway)

Regards, Mark.

Just thought I'd report that EASy68K works absolutely perfectly on Debian 4.0r1 Etch under wine 0.9.49, installed without any tweaking required.
