This debugging tool intercepts the traps generated by a 68040 or 68060 
processor as soon as it detects an instruction that is valid, but not
implemented in hardware. It is the job of the 68040 or 68060.library to
emulate these instructions in software. FPSPSnoop disassembles these
instructions, and prints the user status of the CPU and FPU at the
time the emulation is entered.

The disassembled instruction as well as as other status information is
printed over the serial port, at 9600 baud, 8 bit, one stop bit, no parity.

A debugging or logging tool like Sushi or Sashimi can be used to display
this output for a one-computer setup.

FPSPSnoop requires the installation of the disassembler.library (DisLib.lha
on Aminet) and the mmu.library (MMULib.lha on Aminet). Both libraries
are not included in this archive.

Installation:

Download the DisLib.lha and MMULib.lha archives from Aminet and install
them if you haven't done so already. Especially, the disassembler.library
and the mmu.library must be placed into LIBS: or any other directory where
an OpenLibray() will find them. 

Copy FPSPSnoop to whereever you want.
_____________________________________________________________________________

Starting FPSPSnoop:

If you do not own two computers and a null-modem cable, you need to run
Sashimi first. Now start FPSPSnoop. The program won't return to the shell
until you abort it with ^C (Control-C) which will de-install it.

To test FPSPSnop, open a new shell and run the TestFPU command. Sashimi
or an external terminal should now show the disassembly of some implemented
instructions.

Synopsis:

FPSPSnoop NOFPSP/S,NOISP/S,NOOVL/S,NOUVL/S,NOSNAN/S,NOOPERR/S,NOBUN/S,
	  NOINEX/S,NODIVZ/S,NOUNEA/S,NOUNDT/S

NOFPSP/S		If present, do not snoop unimplemented FPU 
			instructions.

NOISP/S			If present, FPSPSnoop does not snoop the 
			unimplemented integer instruction exception of the
			68060. This switch has no effect for the 68040.

NOOVL/S			Do not snoop overflow exceptions which are generated
			for unnormalized or denormalized results the 040 or
			060 cannot handle in hardware.

NOUVL/S			Do not snoop underflow exceptions the 040 or 060
			cannot handle in hardware.

NOSNAN/S		Do not snoop signalling NAN exceptions.

NOOPERR/S		Do not snoop operand error exceptions which occur
			on invalid arguments to certain FPU instructions.

NOBUN/S			Do not snoop "branch on unordered" exceptions that
			occur if a branch decision has to be made on an
			"unordered" (NAN) result.

NOINEX/S		Do not snoop "inexact result" exceptions.

NODIVZ/S		Do not snoop "FPU divide by zero" exceptions.

NOUNEA/S		Do not snoop "unsupported effective address" 
			exceptions that are generated by the 060 or 040 if
			an addressing mode is used that is not directly
			supported by the FPU in hardware.

NOUNDT/S		Do not snoop "unsupported data type" exceptions of
			the 040 and 060 that happen if you try to read or
			write data in "packed decimal" format that is not
			supported in firmware.

Meaning of the snooped output:
