The first public release of ee9, my KDF9 emulator, is now available via:

http://www.findlayw.plus.com/KDF9/#Emulator

The zip file includes a Mac OS X binary, and full Ada 2005 source code.

Courtesy of David Holdsworth, a Linux/FreBSD binary is available at:

(Many thanks to Simon Wright for building a 64-bit GNAT for MacOS X last
year, which rescued me from an over-hasty adoption of Snow Leopard.)

To see a computer of roughly my own age having used highlighting,
in color, making form follow function, and serving intuition
("it's that simple"...) is amazing.
I apologize if this is its least noteworthy feature.
It is spectacular.

It's got separate stacks for separate purposes!

Another of the few insights into the history of wonderful inventions
that market forces have not improved.


Thank you!

You're welcome!

KDF9 does seem to inspire that sort of admiration in people,
Even 50 years after it was designed. 8-)
