                          Distribution Announcement

BSVC is a microprocessor simulation framework written in C++ and Tcl/Tk.
It was developed as a senior design project at North Carolina State
University by Bradford W. Mott.  Since its original development many
professors and students have found BSVC to be a useful tool in courses
based on the Motorola 68000.  It has also been used as a starting point
for other senior design projects.

BSVC was originally written for Unix, however, it has been ported to
Windows 95.  The Windows 95 version has the same features as the Unix
version except the Motorola 68000 simulator does not support the M68681
Dual UART.

The BSVC distribution contains the following:

  * Motorola 68000 simulator & assembler (Supports the M68681 Dual UART)

  * BSVC Graphical User Interface (written in Tcl/Tk)

  * BSVC Simulator Framework (C++ classes)


The following changes have been made:

 2.0 Beta 1 to 2.0:

    a) Modified the BSVC C++ framework to use "standard" C++ libraries
       (STL).  Most of this work was done by Seunghee Lee so the
       framework could be ported to Windows 95.  

    b) Some minor changes were made to the user interface to support
       running it under Tcl/Tk for Windows 95.  This work was done
       by Seunghee Lee.

    c) Modified Sim68000 to work with the new version of the C++ framework

    d) Removed the Hector 1600 and MIL-STD-1750A simulators until they
       can be ported to the new framework

    e) Fixed a problem with the predecrement and postincrement addressing
       modes when the stack pointer and a byte size operation was specified

 1.0.4 to 2.0 Beta 1:

    a) User interface has undergone a major revision

    b) Oliver M. Kellogg's MIL-STD-1750A simulator has been added
       to the distribution

    c) Breakpoints set using Tutor under Sim68000 work correctly

    d) Support for GCC 2.7.2 and Tk 4.0 added

Supported Systems

The BSVC distribution is known to compile on the following systems:

  * Linux 2.x.x
  * HP-UX 9.0
  * Solaris
  * SunOS
  * Ultrix 4.3
  * Windows 95
