Intel 8086 CPU Emulator
An Intel 8086 CPU Emulator written in pure PHP.
The project outlines as described in my blog post about Open Source Software Collaboration.
- The main purpose of this software is to emulate the Intel 8086 CPU using pure PHP.
- The features should not go beyond Intel's features and functions. So the features of this software are limited to those of the Intel 8086 CPU.
- This list is open. Feel free to request features.
Compile the BIOS
In order to have a TTY for the in- and output you can specify
--tty <path>. This will start a
socat subprocess to create an interface between PHP and TTY. The TTY then can be accessed using
Optional, to use a different installation path for the
socat binary you can specify
- Open a shell and run
- Open another shell and run
Byte- 8 bit, one single character.
Word- 16 bit, or 2 Byte.
