chip8 is a CHIP-8 emulator developed in C using the SDL2 multimedia library. It emulates a standard CHIP-8 machine and implements all the opcodes that the specification provides.
To emulate a binary ROM just provide the file as an argument:
$ chip8 ~/roms/TETRIS.bin
Building from sources
In order to compile this project you will need to have SDL 2.0 headers and libraries in your machine. Head to www.libsdl.org to get those in case you still haven't got them or get them using your package manager if your operating system has any.
After installing SDL 2.0 you can download the software distribution and install it via the following commands:
autoreconf --install # Only if you are using the Git repository ./configure make make install make check # Optional: to test the emulator -- libcheck is required
