A method of simulating the operation of a target computer system at a host computer system comprising: parsing a target reference, having an intermediate portion that separates first and second extreme portions, to obtain the intermediate portion and the first extreme portion; accessing a look-up table using the obtained intermediate portion, wherein the look-up table comprises a plurality of entries and each entry is accessed using a different value of the intermediate portion of a target reference; performing an access check using the obtained first extreme portion of the target reference and a first value stored in the accessed entry; and using a second value stored in the accessed entry as a host reference if the access check is successful.
