Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.35nb6, Package name: generator-0.35nb6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Generator is an open source emulator designed to emulate the Sega
Genesis / Mega Drive console, a popular games machine produced in the
early 1990s. It is a portable program written in C and has been
ported to the Amiga, Macintosh, Windows and even pocket PCs such as
the iPAQ and Cassiopeia. Natively it compiles under unix for X
Windows with either tcl/tk or gtk/SDL, for svgalib and even
cross-compiles to DOS with djgpp/allegro.

Generator uses its own custom 68000 processor emulation which is
designed for dynamic recompilation, and uses techniques from this such
as block-marking, flag calculation removal, operand pre-calculation,
endian pre-conversion etc. There are approximately 1600 C routines
generated by the first stage of compilation to cope with the 67
instruction families. These routines are used as a 'backup' when
dynamic recompilation isn't supported on your platform or the
recompiler doesn't support a particular instruction. The CPU engine
is by all accounts very fast, whatever the mode.

There is a 'test' recompiler written for the ARM processor, but it is
no longer supported. If someone with assembler knowledge wants to put
the effort into writing a recompiling back-end for a processor (and it
really is major effort), let me know - particularly if you know i386.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
