BasiliskII - a 68k Macintosh emulator
] [--break offset
is an Open Source 68k Macintosh emulator. That is, it enables you to run 68k
MacOS software on you computer, even if you are using a different operating
system. However, you still need a copy of MacOS and a Macintosh ROM image to
use Basilisk II.
