XRoar - a Dragon/Tandy Coco emulator
Copyright 2003-2017 Ciaran Anscomb <email@example.com>
XRoar is a Dragon emulator that runs on a wide variety of platforms.
Due to hardware similarities, XRoar also emulates the Tandy Colour
Computer (CoCo) models 1 & 2. Some features are:
* Emulates Dragon 32, Dragon 64, Dragon 200-E, Tandy CoCo 1 & 2, and
* Emulates DragonDOS, Delta and RSDOS disk systems.
* Emulates the Orchestra 90-CC stereo sound cartridge.
* Supports both raw and translated keyboard modes.
* Reads and writes virtual cassettes (compact '.cas' files and audio
* Reads and writes VDK, JVC and DMK format virtual floppy diskettes.
* Saves and loads machine snapshots.
* Provides a GDB target for remote debugging.
* Initial Glenside IDE support.
XRoar is easily built from source under Linux, and binary packages
are provided for Windows. It should still be possible to build for Mac
OS X, but no binary packages are currently being provided.
XRoar was originally written to run on Solaris, Linux and the GP32
handheld. Later, it was ported to the Nintendo DS. Support has now been
dropped for the GP32 and NDS as emulation accuracy, and thus the CPU
requirement, has increased. Builds have not been tested under Solaris
for some while.

This README contains extracts from the manual. Binary packages contain the
full manual as a PDF, which is also available from the XRoar home page
Pre-built binary packages are available from the XRoar home page
(http://www.6809.org.uk/xroar/). If one is not available for your
architecture, you will need to build from source. XRoar should build
and run on any POSIX-like system for which SDL is available.
You will also need BASIC ROM images--binary dumps of the firmware
from an original machine. The originals were part-written by Microsoft,
so they are not distributed in the XRoar packages.
