The VAX is suprisingly regular. There are some other processors that
are much worse, architecturally, and some which are complicated to
simulate because of exposed timing details, branch delay slots, etc.
Other processors have better simulators, though.
I believe that the best public list of simulation tools is:
This also lists categories for comparing tools.
(If you know of a better or even different list, please let me know.)
