The Expandable MIX Emulator (EMIX)

by Daniel Andrade & Marcus Pereira

Current version: 0.11 (12-Feb-98)

What the hell is MIX ?

MIX is the machine invented by Prof. Knuth in his famous "The Art of
Computer Programming" series. All the examples in these fantastic books
are written in the MIX assembly.

Why would anybody write a MIX emulator?

The MIX architeture is a great example of the old architetures and it is a
very interesting machine to simulate. Besides this, the "Art of Computer
Programming" series is a indispensable source of information for computer
scientists. Understing and testing the programs in the book would be nice.
