PDP 11/70 Emulator v1.6   June 2017

This emulator came about because years ago I was a programmer for RSTS/E on a PDP 11/45 and had admired the console idle loop light pattern - but I couldn't quite remember how it looked. Given the lack of availability of real systems it became time to write an emulator!

I was going to start with a PDP 11/45 emulator but the extra memory of a PDP 11/70 became far too attractive (a whole 4MB!). It took some time before I finally produced a PDP 11/45 version.

I have met my core objective - I can now see the RSTS/E console light pattern that I was looking for, and found that newer versions (eg v9.6) have a different pattern. Also I have now seen some of the light patterns for other OSes. RSX and BSD 2.11 have their own different patterns and Unix V5 operates with absolute minimum light movement (I'm assuming it operates mostly in WAIT mode).

Getting all of the operating systems used here presents its own set of challenges - one of which is finding the software in the first place. But one of the most interesting was RSTS/E V06C which has its own story.

Note: The boot code in this emulator is a custom PDP 11 program running with it's own set of light patterns. It operates by mapping a WAIT instruction to different addresses within Supervisor mode, and is invoked by the LIGHTS command. The source for this program can be found in the RT11 operating environment as BOOT.MAC

If you plan to run the emulator repeatedly or for a project, consider downloading the emulator to your own machine or server. This will significantly speed any of the emulator disk accesses and response times. All files and emulator OS disks can be found in the top level folder of http://skn.noip.me/pdp11/ or in the single zip file http://skn.noip.me/pdp11/pdp11.zip

Note: If you are running a local copy of the emulator you may have to allow local file access. For chrome this is done using the -allow-file-access-from-files option. Under windows start chrome using the file name of the chrome application with this option:
  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -allow-file-access-from-files
On a Mac use:
  open -a "Google Chrome" --args --allow-file-access-from-files

There are many PDP emulators out there and I have never seen what I consider to be a complete list. Some of the really interesting ones can be found by googling terms such as "vhdl pdp 11". However the gold standard seems to be SIMH at Trailing Edge. A different approach to Javascript PDP 11 emulation can be found at www.pcjs.org.

I believe that the first PDP 11 emulator would be SIM-11 written in FORTRAN before the first PDP 11/20 hardware was even built - see How the PDP-11 Was Born. There is more PDP 11 history at www.hampage.hu.

Of course if you want your own PDP 11/70 front panel you might consider one of these.

Happy emulating!

$ run advent

WELCOME TO ADVENTURE!!  WOULD YOU LIKE INSTRUCTIONS?

yes
SOMEWHERE NEARBY IS COLOSSAL CAVE, WHERE OTHERS HAVE FOUND FORTUNES IN
TREASURE AND GOLD, THOUGH IT IS RUMORED THAT SOME WHO ENTER ARE NEVER 
SEEN AGAIN.  MAGIC IS SAID TO WORK IN THE CAVE.  I WILL BE YOUR EYES
AND HANDS.  DIRECT ME WITH COMMANDS OF 1 OR 2 WORDS.  I SHOULD WARN 
YOU THAT I LOOK AT ONLY THE FIRST FOUR LETTERS OF EACH WORD, SO YOU'LL
HAVE TO ENTER "NORTHEAST" AS "NE" TO DISTINGUISH IT FROM "NORTH". 
(SHOULD YOU GET STUCK, TYPE "HELP" FOR SOME GENERAL HINTS.  FOR INFOR-
MATION ON HOW TO END YOUR ADVENTURE, ETC., TYPE "INFO".)

THIS PROGRAM WAS ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED BY WILLIE CROWTHER.  MOST OF THE
FEATURES OF THE CURRENT PROGRAM WERE ADDED BY DON WOODS (DON @ SU-AI).
THE CURRENT VERSION WAS DONE BY MIKE WESTON.

YOU ARE STANDING AT THE END OF A ROAD BEFORE A SMALL BRICK BUILDING.
AROUND YOU IS A FOREST.  A SMALL STREAM FLOWS OUT OF THE BUILDING AND 
DOWN A GULLY.

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO QUIT NOW? 

yes
OK

YOU SCORED  27 OUT OF A POSSIBLE 350, USING    8 TURNS.

TO ACHIEVE THE NEXT HIGHER RATING, YOU NEED  9 MORE POINTS.

>HELP
 
        Help is available for many RSX-11M commands and utilities.  
 
        For help in logging into the system, type HELP HELLO or HELP 
        LOGIN.  You'll need a user-ID and password to log in.  Ask your
        system manager.
 
        RSX-11M systems have two major command languages or CLIs:  MCR
        and DCL.  Once you log in, your terminal is set to either
        MCR or DCL.  (All terminals are set to MCR prior to logging in.)
 
        The general forms of the HELP command are:
 
                >HELP[/cli] topic [subtopic[s]]
 
                >HELP commandname [switch]
 
        Once you are logged in, you need not include the name of the CLI
        to which your terminal is set.   
        
        For information on what further help is available, type
        HELP[/MCR] LIST (brackets indicate an optional command line
        entry) or HELP/DCL.  For a listing of help available on other
        topics, type HELP[/MCR] MORE or HELP/DCL MORE.  You need not
        log in to get help.

Bugs?

Plenty! Especially in the places where I haven't managed to figure out what a real PDP 11/70 should do. :-( Core PDP 11/70 stuff is well documented but some lesser used system functions require reverse engineering to understand.

If you have something you want me to look at let me know and I'll prioritise. However always happy to accept fixes!
