SwiftIOS Overview

Architecture

SWIFT IOS is based around the concept of Contained Process Emulation, there are good reasons for this. CPE works by having a native wrapper process which loads UNOS (COFF or .REL) executables, and runs them via a MC68000 emulator. The CPE translates UNOS syscalls into native calls, maps filenames, provides emulated RMB hardware, device support via /dev, and graphics capability via an X display.
