CP/Mulator

CP/Mulator is a complete CP/M emulator which allows the Sinclair QL to run the wide range of software written for this operating system.

The supplied disk or microdrive cartridge included tools to convert CP/M format disks to QDOS format, so that they could be read from within the emulator.

The emulator supports all CP/M commands, including wildcards, and also supports the terminals expected by many of the CP/M programs in order to ensure that the screen is properly displayed. The only programs which are said not to be supported are those written to use concurrent versions of CP/M.

The program is written in 68000 machine code, and uses an EPROM cartridge to emulate the Z-80 microprocessor.

This was based on an earlier CP/Mulator reviewed in the June 1987 edition of Sinclair QL World, re-written to allow it to multi-task with QDOS, and including an advanced file transfer facility to convert files for the QL, as well as being much faster.
