One of my PI's (a Pi 3 so fast for a PI) runs Hercules quite happily. I just did a:-

sudo apt-get install hercules x3270

(actually installed x3270 separately).

Then downloaded and installed the latest 6-pck beta

I got 6200 KWhetstones using Fortran G on VM/370 which seems pretty quick to me.

My P390 gives 2700 under the same conditions. Given the shortcomings of Fortran G

I guess it really runs about 10 mips, so over twice as fast as a 4381 model 3.

Wish I had kept the benchmarks I ran on "ours" (NERCs) 4381...

here is a pic of the Pi and the P390 together

Don’t they look happy together

Martin Truebner would you do us a favor and share how you managed to
convince a regular Raspberry Pi that it was a Z114 system? (And which OS it
runs via Hercules of course.)
I saw that mentioned on a thread concerning Hercules Console commands
via command line, and figured I'd open a new thread to ask this one.
I have a batch of them some doing nothing here, and am interested in
confusing one of them to do that. As for boxing it in Lego that's a bigger
Obviously one of you will be reading this with an audience, and one from
underwater, and still another with a statue or two watching him.
And any two will have other issues unrelated to those.
