GNU MIX Development Kit (MDK)
Emulator and development environment for Knuth's MIX computer
MDK stands for MIX Development Kit, and provides tools for developing and executing, in a MIX virtual machine, MIXAL programs. The MIX is Donald Knuth's mythical computer, described in the first volume of The Art of Computer Programming, which is programmed using MIXAL, the MIX assembly language. MDK includes a MIXAL assembler (mixasm) and a MIX virtual machine (mixvm) with a command line interface. In addition, a GTK+ GUI to mixvm, called gmixvm, and a Guile interpreter with an embedded MIX virtual machine called mixguile, are provided.
It also contains an Emacs major mode for MIXAL programming and an elisp program allowing to run the MIX virtual machine in one buffer while viewing the MIXAL source code in another.
