    Emulators are computer programs that translate instructions for one type of processor to instructions that your own computer can execute. For example, there are emulators available that understand the instruction sets of video game processors and allow you to play video games on your computer.

    Similarly, there are emulators which can simulate your calculator. Emulators are advantageous because they can run much faster than the original processor (in this case, your calculator) and they allow you to view detailed information about the code that's being executed, which is especially helpful for programmers. To get started, first download a ROM image from your calculator. Then find an emulator for your calculator and operating system.
