Qemu now support AVR
« on: July 21, 2020, 01:19:44 pm »
An interesting new option for debugging or emulating AVR code: https://www.qemu.org/docs/master/system/target-avr.html

Only USART and timer hardware support, but still could be quite useful.

The installation is certainly very complicated.
The following systems are also supported.

x86 (PC)
PowerPC
Sparc32
Sparc64
MIPS
poor
ColdFire
Xtensa

RX
AVR

Hi,

Nice !

Thanks for the heads up.

What do you mean? On Windows it's just an installer and on Linux it's usually part of the package system.

The following systems are also supported.

QEMU definitely supports many systems and is a huge help when working on the compiler on other CPUs as it's user space emulation on Linux allows to run executables of a different CPU directly on my x86 system and it even works inside WSL. :D

The installation of QEmu is certainly a snap but, and he probably means this, the setup of a virtual machine can be rather daunting at first, what with all those options which one is never quite sure what will they do.

Fortunately, there are quite a lot of GUI "launchers" that allow you to define a machine almost as easily as one does with, say, VirtualBox. Google for "qemu launcher" or "qemu gui" and you'll find tons of them.

In Golf that would be a triple bogey. But indeed Qemu is a rather handy tool in the box.
