An emulation system that provides the functionality of an emulated computer on a host computer pre-processes the object code file to be emulated to reduce the run-time overhead due to parsing the object code. The emulator uses pre-programmed functions that model each instruction of the emulated computer. An object code file is pre-parsed to generate a translated file which includes a sequence of function calls corresponding to the sequence of instructions in the code file. The translated file is compiled to generate a corresponding translated object-code file. The translated object-code file is executed in the emulation environment on the host computer. The emulation system also includes a standard mode in which the object code file is emulated by sequentially parsing each instruction in the object code file and invoking an appropriate one of the preprogrammed functions in the emulated environment.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
