- XSICSIH is an X-based graphical interface for the SICSIM computer simulation tool.
- Its graphical portrayal of register-level components tmwforms the ‘black box” SICSIM machine into a ‘visual computer”, helping students understand how computers work.
- Single step, fast-ezecution, and breakpoints are among the control features helpful for debugging assembly language programs.
- Automatic disassembly and format conversions and displays for comparing expected to actual execution reduce fiwstmtion in debugging loader, macro processor, and assembler projects.
