Thread: CP/M Linux emulator binaries?

  1. CP/M Linux emulator binaries?

    I know this is a FAQ, but what I read in the FAQ for Linux is all
    source code format. And while I understand and approve etc., my Linux
    system was created from a Knoppix CD-ROM, is not online, and I am
    looking for binaries.

    I tried dosemu to use the MyZ80 I have on this system, but to no
    avail ... and anyway, it seems silly to emulate DOS simply to emulate
    CP/M.

    This is not urgent or essential, just a convenience ... I have another
    san-hard-drive system that only boots DSL Linux, that I can use as a
    floppy-disk Freedos system and do it that way, but I'd rather have it
    on my main Forth editing and development station.

    Is the Altair emulator in simh good enough for your purposes? If so,
    Debian packages simh, so we should be able to find you a binary .deb
    to install.

    Thanks ... but maybe not?

    What I am doing is building an hForth image that has the ANS Forth
    FILES wordset (and if it works, probably the same for Camel Forth),
    and I know that hForth is for the Z80 ... I think that the CP/M
    CamelForth is for the Z80 as well.

    Wasn't Altair an 8080 system? Or is there an emulated version of some
    Altair upgraded with a Z80?

    The processor is the main issue that comes to my mind ... I don't have
    any exacting terminal emulation requirements.

    Is there a popular Z80-based game computer that supported CP/M? I know
    that the retro game emulators are often the ones with the biggest
    support community.

    The simh altair simulator has the option of using a Z80 CPU, though the
    real machine did not. So it might work.

    Not to worry, I took another crack at dosemu, after looking around for
    more info online before heading to that machine, and this time it
    worked. So I've got MyZ80 up and running in the Dos box in the Linux
    box.
