"Q-emuLator is a software emulator of the Sinclair QL home computer.

"Originally written in 1994/95 for the Mac OS, Q-emuLator is now being ported to Windows 95.

"Q-emuLator emulates the QL's processor (the Motorola M68008) and redirects the basic QL I/O (video, keyboard, mouse, mass storage, sound, serial ports) to the PC hardware. Putting a QL's ROM in this virtual environment makes it possible to run QDOS without its noticing that it's not running in a QL black case."
