    I'm taking a microprocessor class this semester and we are doing ARM assembly language. I have an intel mac. Is there way I can write and test my code on my computer?

    Thanks guys!

    What you're looking for is probably an Instruction Set Simulator. There are many available, most notably SPIM (for MIPS) and ARMulator (for ARM).

    ARMulator is cross-platform and should run on a Mac without any problems. It is provided by ARM Ltd. itself so I think it is a good choice.

    Hope this helps.
