The LC-3 – Chapter 6 COMP 2620 Dr. James Money COMP
Example 1: Multiplying In this example, we consider a program that should multiply two numbers that are non- negative This is needed since the LC-3 does not have a multiply instruction The numbers are in R4 and R5 and the result should be stored in R2
Example 1: Multiplying x x x x x clear R2 add R4 to R2 decrement R5 R5 = 0? HALT No Yes Set R4 = 10, R5 =3. Run program. Result: R2 = 40, not 30.
PCR2R4R5 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x PC and registers at the beginning of each instruction PCR2R4R5 x x x x Single-stepping Breakpoint at branch (x3203) Executing loop one time too many. Branch at x3203 should be based on Z bit only, not Z and P. Should stop looping here!
Example 2: Summing In this example, we want to sum an array of numbers The numbers start at location 0x3100 There are 10 numbers The result should be in R1 when the module finishes
Example 2: Summing R4 = 0? HALT No Yes R1 = 0 R4 = 10 R2 = x3100 R1 = R1 + M[R2] R2 = R2 + 1 R4 = R4 - 1 x x x x x x x x x x
Example 2: Summing Running the data below yields R1 = x0024, but the sum should be x8135. What happened?
