16 <STRONG>Frodo</STRONG> is an open and free C64 emulator for BeOS, Unix,
17 MacOS, AmigaOS, Win32 and RiscOS systems and the world's first C64 emulator
18 not bearing a "64" in its name. <TT>:-)</TT><P>

20 Frodo comes in two <A HREF="flavours.html">flavours</A>: The regular
21 <STRONG>Frodo</STRONG> with a line-based emulation, and the single-cycle
22 emulation <STRONG>Frodo SC</STRONG> that is slower but far more
23 compatible.<P>

25 In addition to a precise 6510/VIC emulation, Frodo features a full,
26 processor-level 1541 emulation that is able to handle most fast loaders.
27 There is also an alternative, faster 1541 emulation of four drives in
28 .d64/x64 disk images, .t64/LYNX archives, or directories of the host
29 system.<P>
