The EDSAC was the world's first stored-program computer to operate a regular computing service. Designed and built at Cambridge University, the EDSAC performed its first fully automatic calculation on May 6, 1949. The simulator written at Warwick University is a faithful emulation of the EDSAC designed to run on a personal computer. The user interface has all the controls and displays of the original machine, and the system includes a library of original programs, subroutines, debugging software, and program documentation. This paper describes the reasons for creating the simulator and the steps taken to achieve a historically authentic emulation.
