I may be wrong but isn't javascript an Apple language.

The language of the iPOD ?

We should not dismiss the iPOD / javascript.

Somewhere on the internet I saw a project where Emulators were in Javascript.

Just as the laptop took over from the PC, we may find the iPOD concept replaces the laptop.

Perhapos the future of Retro Computers - Emulators etc lies in the iPOD.

How about that !!!!

Shame about the title - it's difficult to discuss without going off topic.

But here's some off topic thoughts, all items found need to be 'freeware' or equivalent

In the Retro world, can anyone find Javascript for:
* Emulators
* ASM for Z80
* ASM for 6809
* ASM for 68008
* Manuals on Javascript
* support for writing iPOD applets

In the non Javascript world can anyone find web sites for the same items, but with the source code in C, C++ or PASCAL.

Anyone found and wish to give a review.

Anyone found cross-compilers that start with say C, C++ or PASCAL and end up with assembler in 6502, Z80, 6809 or 68008. Preferably with soirce code.

A bit off topic but I would be interested in feedback.

Dates far further back than the iPod unfortunately. Used to be netscape stuff, then Sun, now, oh, who knows. Oracle is it?

I don't much like it, yes it's cross platform and multi browser compatible, but, meh, it's slow and clunky. And I don't like programming it.

Yay for HTML5!


In terms of your speculation about the future of emulation, well, yes, I think it's about instant gratification isn't it. Which most games nowadays don't give (you have to wade through half an hour of FMV video...anyone played the latest metal gear solid film game? My point is, on a phone, you're usually wasting five minutes.

@Thread

Hey guys, JavaScript shouldn't be confused with Java, these are two distinct entities with very little relation either syntaxial or interpretation.

JavaScript (an interpreted language *like BASIC* ) had its uses, but sadly it was very prone to be exploited on any system it was running - due to nefarious mind types using JavaScript its very easy to compromise a system, infact a little too easy - unfortunately when you start bolting down JavaScript to be secuirty minded, it looses its useability for the most part.

Java on the other hand uses libraries and a different syntaxt to handle multiple objects, this is then partially compiled - think of it like object code that C / C++ uses.

Now, the host will have a Java Object code interpreter that is native for that machine - x86 / PPC / ARM etc and it runs the object codes through its parser.

Java is a LOT faster than JavaScript as by definition its not a scripted language - however, when programming while I am quite competent in Java and JavaScript, I much prefer C / C++ since you can craft ones code for the target machine - optimizing it, honing it, to really squeeze the performance out of it... while hand crafter asembly would be faster - you can even use ASM inline with C code.

Recently I got into Sinclair spectrums in a big way - so much so it got me back into writing Z80 assembly =)

If i had a hammer, I would hammer in the morning.... I would hammer in the evening.... I would hammer all day :)

I wished I had the time and the knowledge to program in C/C++ or Z80 assembly for that matter !!  :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

Came across this thread the other day and even though it's old, I thought I'd post this link to an online z80 assembler. I haven't tried it myself though.
