Simulator for HP 3000 series computers
hp3000 is a simulator for the classic SIO machines. This
group consists of the 3000 CX, the Series I, Series II, and the HP 3000 Series
III that is simulated here. A large variety of CPU options, device interface
cards, and peripherals are provided.
The following options are available:
- Processing of startup-file (including nested command
invocations) is aborted if a command error is encountered.
- Certain informational messages are suppressed.
- The commands in startup-file are echoed before they
If startup-file is specified, it is used as
an initial source of simulator commands. If
startup-file is not specified, default locations are
searched. See the SIMH User's Supplement for more
If a startup file is specified, either on the command line or
otherwise, it should contain a series of non-interactive simulator commands,
one per line. These commands can be used to set up standard parameters.
After initializing its internal structures and processing the
startup file (if any), the simulator types out its name and version and then
prompts for input with:
hp3000 exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
Documentation is available; it can be found locally in
/usr/local/share/doc/hp3000 (if installed), and also
