Using Astrobe RISC5 with RISC5 emulators

Post by berkeleynerd » Fri Aug 11, 2023 2:03 am

Is it possible to get started using Astrobe for RISC5 by targeting a RISC5 emulator such as https://github.com/pdewacht/oberon-risc-emu ?

You could use Astrobe's editor and code navigation features to work on source code modules which you would then transfer to Peter's emulator using its file transfer features. You would then compile these modules on the emulator. However, you would need to avoid using any of the Astrobe-specific extensions documented in the Oberon Programmers Guide which is supplied with Astrobe for RISC5.

Is that the sort of thing you had in mind?

We are working on making the Project Oberon workstation available on a wider range of actual FPGA hardware. See https://www.astrobe.com/RISC5/Workstation.htm for more information on what can currently be done.
