TOPS-10 on PDP-10 Emulation HOW-TOs




Here are my how-to pages for running TOPS-10 on a PDP-10 emulator. The PDP-10 runs Digital Equipment Corporation's (DEC) TOPS-10, TOPS-20, and several non DEC operating systems. Linux, Solaris, and Windows platforms can host PDP-10 emulators. Where applicable, the examples assume the Solaris 10 platform.  Most of the information pertaining to TOPS-10 are emulator platform independent. 

Emulation host operating system:

Solaris 10 on x86
