Some insight about Process Virtual Machines.

So, I understood more about Process VMs, simply last night, I was all of a sudden aware out of the blue of how it works, roughly.

I also found a sample VM implementation, the one which is supposedly used in packers/protectors, albeit probably not as advanced, but still worth the read. Here's the link

Anyway, I guess it's sort of a misconception that a VM executes anything, it does not, the VM instructions are simply "interpreted" i.e if  the instruction is MOV REG_DEST, REG_SRC, you are the one that must handle this operation.

I might write my own VM implementation, just to learn more.
