The Ski simulator: an HP-proprietary instruction-set simulator for the IA-64

Packaged by Al Stone

The Ski simulator is a software package designed to functionally simulate the IA-64 processor architecture at the instruction level. Ski offers an informative, screen-oriented machine-state display and a friendly, powerful command-line interface. Programs may be loaded from disk in executable format; they may be run from start to finish, single-stepped, and break-pointed. Execution can occur in a text-oriented or a graphical user interface or in batch-mode, with no user-interface at all. Both the user-level and the system-level machine-state can be simulated. For user-level execution, Ski will intercept IA-64 Linux system calls and translate them into the corresponding system calls of the host operating system.
