"V41" for Mac? - Gilles Esposito-Farese - 02-02-2005

Would anybody know about a Macintosh port of "V41",
Warren Furlow's superb HP-41 emulator for Windows
<http://www.furlow.org/>?

Eric Smith's "NSIM" for X window (Unix)
<http://www.brouhaha.com/~eric/software/nsim/>
is very nice, as well as Maciej Bartosiak's port
<http://homepage.mac.com/mba/nsim/>
to Mac OS X, but they are less complete than "V41".

Indeed, "V41" provides the full set of ROMs and packages which were
developed for the HP-41 C/V/X, including the Time Module, Extended
Functions, and the great PPC ROM. It also provides a realistic sound
emulation and an impressive "Turbo" mode. The key mapping is also
very clever, and it works even on foreign laptop keyboards :-).

Maybe someone could teach "NSIM" how to read the ".MOD" files, or
find a straightforward way to translate "V41" to Unix or Mac OS?
[If, luckily, there exists a volunteer, I would suggest to build
a "Carbon" application, so that old OS 9 Macs can also use it.]

Looking forward to receiving hints or answers; all the best,
Gilles Esposito-Farese

It is very easy to add support for more rom modules to NSIM, as the emulator itself can handle almost everything -- it's just a matter of user interface. I'm downoading the V41 source right now to see what can be done...
