IBM 5110 Emulator in JavaScript

Recommended Posts

The IBM 5100 and 5110 were IBM's first "portable" computers. They had interpreters of the machine languages of IBM's much bigger machines System/3 and System/360 in their ROMs, and so this small computer could execute (slightly adapted) BASIC and APL language implementations of the large machines.

 

I ported Christian Corti's great IBM 5110 emulator to JavaScript, so you can work with an emulated IBM 5110 directly in your (HTML5-capable) web
browser.

Disk and tape support are still to be done, and I could not test it with a US keyboard layout. I nonetheless wanted to share the WIP version to give you a first impression. If someone succeeded to dump IBM 5110 tapes or disks and could provide an image file, this would be great for further testing.

Those who are interested, can try out the emulator and write some small BASIC or APL programs at http://members.aon.at/nkehrer

Greetings

Norbert
