operating system, tool (WABI) A software package from SunMicrosystems to allow certain Microsoft Windows
applications under the X Window System. Wabi 2.2 runs under
Solaris on SPARC, Intel, and PowerPC. Wabi works by
providing translated versions of the three core Windows
libraries, user.dll, kernel.dll, and gdi.dll which
redirect Windows calls to Solaris equivalents. For code other
than core library calls Wabi either executes the instructions
directly on the hardware, if it is Intel, or emulates them,
either one instruction at a time or by translating a block of
instructions and caching the result (e.g. for a loop).
