crsp (WIP)

A CHIP-8 emulator written in Rust.


So far only headless processor emulation code has been written (in crsp-base) and that is also still lacking some timing, sound and screen related code. The main crate crsp will contain code for a GUI binary for this emulator.


(CHIP(-8) → crisp) + Rust (rs) = crsp
