RChipSim51 replacement


Greetings
I have been told by my school,that I have to use the RChipSim 51 emulator for the 8051 micro-controller. This is for the Windows platform and I only use Linux and am very reluctant to use Wine just to run an emulator. Is there anything native to Linux that will do the same trick? I was wondering about NASM, but don't know enough to be able to answer this myself.
Any ideas?

Cheers

- Andy

What exactly is RChipSim 51? I once used a tool called MultiSim, which was a virtual electronics workbench. Nasm is an assembler, so...unless you tell us more about RChipSIm, i cant help you furthur.

Shoot now you're asking!!! We haven't started on it yet, so I'm not sure ... but I believe that it is an emulation environment for the 8085 microcontroller ... if that helps any???

Taken from the developer of RChipSim's website...
Code:
Reads51 is an integrated applications software
 development system, which runs on an IBM PC or
 compatible host. Reads51 contains a C compiler,
 relative assembler, linker/locator, editor,  chip
 simulator, assembly language debugger, and
 host-to-board communications in a user-friendly,
 menu-driven environment.
It seems like you simulate circuits and programs inside the environment.

I dont know of any applications for linux that will do the same, since the application is made for a certain chip.

You are probebly going to have to emulate this app.

Thanks mate - appreciate your input anyway. I will keep looking just in case there is some obscure workaround.
