Dear Sir,

[Reposted from Page 1 of this topic!]

PocketDOS emulates an 80186 processor, which is a relatively simple processor to emulate in comparison to an 80486 processor. Given that the the added complexity of emulating a >80186 processor slows down the emulation by several orders of magnitude we decided not to develop >80186 emulation for PocketDOS (being that the current 80186 emulation has barely acceptable performance as it is). However there are several OpenSource PC emulators available and we have adapted the CPU emulation components of two of these emulators (Bochs & DOSBox) so that they can be used as plug-ins for PocketDOS. It is the added complexity (and possibly the design) of these emulators which results in them giving poorer performance than our own 80186 emulator.

Thank you for your interest.
