I think I created a better rig. Leaving Cog out of the picture seems to
A standard image from squeak.org with VMMaker loaded in from
I create a fullscreen stimulator.image with the code in the workspace:
/(InterpreterSimulatorLSB new openOn: 'source.image') test/
Then open the stimulator image and execute. I get the satisfying "Object
Pointer Relocating" message and it's on its way.
I then get a ByteSymbol>>coerceTo:sim: error stemming from
While this could work, I don't get the impression that this is how
people hack the vm: activating the simulator; getting the satisfactory
image; generate C files to compile.
I bet people hack the methods in the Interpreter class directly. I bet
that's faster than getting the simulator to work and then doing things
in slow motion with the slow simulator.
The simulator is more historical than practical, I'm thinking.
