Thank you all who responded:
Larry Stewart, David Lombard, Franklin Jones,
Douglas Guptill, Thomasz Rolla, Jim Lux.

Glad to see that many of you had not only thought of this,
but actually implemented simulators for many outstanding computers.

I compiled SIMH.

However, I suppose I need to load software to actually simulate
each computer (Assembler? OS? other more specific sw?), correct?

If yes, is this software available, and where?

Any documentation on how to run them?

Many thanks,
Gus Correa
