Emulator (Wabbit Instructions)
Wabbit Emulator is an on screen TI - calculator that can be downloaded as FreeWare
and installed on your computer.
These emulators are computer based programs that simulate your
calculators. They can be downloaded from several sites including TIcalc.org
and must be used with the ROM (Read Only Memory) image of a calculator you
own. An emulator is useless without a ROM image, which contains the software
you use to operate the calculator. It is illegal to distribute these ROM
image files; you must copy the ROM from your calculator using a link cable.
Do not ask anyone for ROM images. It is illegal to distribute them. The only
way to legally obtain a ROM image is to download it from your own calculator
using procedures defined by the creators of the emulator. To link directly
