CSE 30 -- Lecture 4 -- Oct 8

OIC simulator

See last lecture's web page for instructions on how to use it.

How to do subroutines with the OIC

Let's look at the following version of ``multiply'' and refine it:
	/* multiply x and y, storing result in z */
	s = 0;
	i = -x;
	while (i != 0) {
		s = add(s,y);
		i = i + 1;
where add is a function that we call. Note: there is a bug here -- the result is left in s and never copied to z; you can fix this yourself.

Here's the code:

mult:	subz s,s,next		; s = 0;
	subz i,i,next
	subz i,x,next		; i = -x;
mloop:	subz i,zero,mdone	; while (i != 0) {
	; prepare to call add
	subz t,t,next		; move s to a
	subz t,s,next
	subz a,a,next
	subz a,t,next
	subz t,t,next		; move y to b
	subz t,y,next
	subz b,b,next
	subz b,t,next
	subz addret,addret,next
	subz addret,retproto,next
	subz addret,negretaddr,next
	subz t,t,add
	subz t,t,next		; move c to s
	subz t,c,next
	subz s,s,next
	subz s,t,next
	subz i,neg1,next
	subz t,t,mloop		; }
mdone:	subz t,t,mdone		; infinite loop to indicate done
; Add subroutine
add:	subz t,t,next		; t = -a-b
	subz t,a,next
	subz t,b,next
	subz c,c,next		; c = -t
	subz c,t,next
addret:	0 0 0			; generated return instr goes here
; Data
t:	0 0 0
a:	0 0 0
b:	0 0 0
c:	0 0 0
s:	0 0 0
x:	0 0 3			; inputs, should be elsewhere
y:	0 0 8			; inputs, should be elsewhere
z:	0 0 0
i:	0 0 0
; Constants
zero:	0 0 0
neg1:	0xffff 0xffff 0xffff
	- ( t t 0 )
This is the symbolic version; let's see what the hand-assembled version looks like. Click on this with your middle mouse button. This will open another window with that page so you can set the two side-by-side and compare.

OIC assignment

Due before class next Wednesday.

Write an OIC program that starts execution at address 0 which takes two input values X and Y at address 0x1000 and 0x1001 respectively, and computes XY, placing the result in address 0x1002. This program must call a mult function rather than computing it in-line. See the Q&A page regarding 00. Also, the input values must be read-only -- your program should not try to modify the input memory locations (I said it in class, but just added the read-only requirement to the web page).

You should look at mult.oic and mult.inp.oic to see how to separate the inputs from the actual code. You should turn in your program and all of your test inputs. The name of your program file should be exp.oic. Your test cases should be in files named test1.oic, test2,oic etc. If you wish to structure your program into several files, all of them should be named exp*.oic. No extraneous files with the same name pattern should exist. This means that to run your program, doing:

% oic -s 0x1000 -c 3 exp*.oic test1.oic
should work.

This is a multi-file turnin, so you will have to use the tar program (also read the instructions from help turnin).

OIC Simulator

The source code to the oic program is available in ~/../public/src/oic.c. You may wish to look at it or compile it for another machine. You are not, however, required to look at it. Furthermore, it is your responsibility to make sure that your OIC programs work -- I do not guarantee that the simulator will compile and run correctly on any other machine. Make sure that your OIC program runs on ieng9.
