Coldfire Emulator development

This topic describes the development effort to extend the existing Coldfire Emulator to support CF5249. The emulator site is


DaveHooper: I spoke with Dave, the author of the Coldfire Emulator, and he said that he is very happy to work with us on adding 5249 support. He's busy for the next couple of weeks due to RealLife?(tm) but together we will be setting up a SourceForge page. Dave is currently working on overhauling the entire opcode handling subsystem, and he's predicting improved emulator speed of 25% or more. He suggests that while he is doing this, we do any development against the 0.2.2 version.

LinusNielsenFeltzing: How come we don't add a simulated target for gdb instead? That would IMHO be a lot more valuable, since we get the debugger for free.

JoshBassett: I don't know anything about writing a simulated target for gdb. Do you think it would be difficult Linus? I was thinking the Coldfire Emulator extensions would a more introductory path (in terms of my abilities)...perhaps once we've made the required extensions to the Coldfire Emulator we could port it to a gdb simulated target? But hey, I'm keen either way smile
