Some up to date Amithlon documentation

Interesting.....

Am I correct in assuming that Sheepshaver virtualises the 68k CPU?
amithlon support running x86 code, so you could port winuae. talking to the os requires an endian conversion, but there is a build of gcc that supports that.

The 68k macos on 68k amiga emulations generally work by patching macos to run as a user process. There are a few things you have to do to stop it conflicting, but it doesn't really count as virtualising.

Yeah, the entire system is re-emulated using 68k uae on a "68k" system.

Unfortunately the jit cpu emulation in uae assumes little endian byte ordering, but you couldnt use the jit code path for amithlon native uae. That said though even interpeted emulation would be faster on native x86 amitholon vs completely emulated with amithlons 68k emulator.
As yet there's not a great deal of amithlon natively compiled software, so Id be a happy man if Vice does end up getting an amithlon version.

Perhaps Amithlon support could be added to AmiDevCPP to make things a little easier for people who want to compile x86-BE versions of their Amiga apps?
