The Source code
Flexemu and FLEXplorer are developed under the terms of the
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENCE V2.
The project has been completely developed using modern C++. It compiles with
the current GNU/clang C++ compiler.
The source distribution is based on autotools
for easy compilation/installation on linux and also contains a Microsoft Visual
Studio 2015 solution.
Much thanks for Ray Bellis and L.C. Benschop for their
MC6809 emulation sources.
Two MC6809 Microprocessor emulations
Lot's of peripheral hardware components like
MC6850 (serial port), MC6821 (parallel port),
MC146818 (realtime clock), WD1793 (Floppy disk controller),
GUI classes for Win32, XToolkit,
wxWidgets (needed for FLEXplorer and FSetup)
Classes for managing DSK, FLX and
No class library (except for wxWidgets) have been used to be more independant
for porting to new platforms. The model classes are completely separated from the GUI.
On Linux there is a special mode available to work completely without a GUI.
All input/output can be handled by a terminal.
Requirements for Flexemu
Either a Linux box with at least an X11-Server is needed.
For Win32 everything is based on the pure Win32 API.
Requirements for FLEXplorer and FSetup
These programs have a more complex GUI and therefore
wxWidgets has been used.
It provides an (almost) platform independant programming environment for
creating complex GUIs. To compile wxWidgets on Linux also the Gimp Toolkit
(GTK) is needed. Most of the current Linux distributions have it included.
Otherwise it can be downloaded from
