Description : Educational MIPS simulator - DrMIPS
DrMIPS is a graphical simulator of the MIPS processor to support computer
architecture teaching and learning. It is intuitive, versatile and
configurable. The simulator is available not only for personal computers but
also for Android devices, especially tablets.
DrMIPS was created under the Master's dissertation entitled "Tool to Support
Computer Architecture Teaching and Learning" at FEUP.
I am the author of the program. Above was the "general" description of the
This simulator is to be used mostly in Computer Architecture classes where the
MIPS architecture is studied.
It simulates some MIPS code and shows, step-by-step: the assembled code, the
registers, the data memory and a graphical representation of the datapath
(unicycle or pipeline).
I intend to package the PC version of the simulator (obviously).
Now, I know this is a very specific program, and useless to most people.
Also, besides the University where it was created, probably almost no one else
uses it (1 or 2 other universities, at maximum).
So, I'm perfectly fine if the package is not accepted. After all, no one
requested this package.
But this would also be the first package I would send to Debian, so it would be
useful for me to learn how to submit packages to Debian and Ubuntu
I have a package for Ubuntu in a PPA, though (ppa:brunonova/ppa).
