Saving and Restoring Registers Generally use “callee-save” strategy, except for return values. –Save anything that the subroutine will alter internally that shouldn’t be visible when the subroutine returns. –It’s good practice to restore incoming arguments to their original values (unless overwritten by return value). Remember: You MUST save R7 if you call any other subroutine or TRAP.

Problem Each call of the subroutine overwrites R7 with its return address, but all of the calls save R7 in the same data variable Each call must return to a context in which its own parameter R1 was saved, but they’re all saved in the same data variable Restoration of registers for more than one recursive call is impossible

9
Solution We need a means of stacking up saved values so the contexts of calls can be saved and restored in a last in, first out manner (many instances of R1, R7, etc.) A system stack provides for this

10
The Stack Interface The stack structure consists of a stack pointer (in R6, which now can’t be used for anything else) and two subroutines, PUSH and POP At program startup, the stack pointer is initialized to an address just above the keyboard status register R0 provides the interface for data pushed or popped

11
The Stack Implementation The stack pointer moves up (to a smaller memory address) during a PUSH The stack pointer moves down (to a larger memory address) during a POP Won’t bother with stack overflow or underflow for now

12
The Place of the Runtime Stack in Memory System memory Main program (code and data) Subroutines (code and data) Runtime System Device registers STACK BOTTOM: xFDFF Each push decrements the stack pointer by one Stack grows upwards toward user memory Main program.ORIG: x3000 System.ORIG: x0000

;; Subroutine FACTORIAL ; Returns the factorial of R1 in R2 ; Input parameter: R1 ; Output parameter: R2 ; R3 = temporary working storage ;; Pseudocode: ; if number > 0 ; return number * fact(number – 1) ; else ; return 1 FACTORIALADD R1, R1, #0; If number > 0 then recurse BRp RECURSE LD R2, FACTONE; Base case: return 1 RET RECURSEADD R0, R7, #0; Save my return address JSR PUSH ADD R0, R3, #0; Save the working storage JSR PUSH ADD R0, R1, #0; Save my input parameter JSR PUSH ADD R1, R1, #-1; Decrement the number JSR FACTORIAL JSR POP; Restore my input parameter ADD R1, R0, #0 JSR MUL; R3 = R1 * R2 [number * fact(number – 1)] ADD R2, R3, #0; Shift the product back to R2 JSR POP; Restore the working storage ADDR3, R0, #0 JSR POP; Restore my return address ADD R7, R0, #0 RET ; Data for subroutine FACT FACTONE.FILL 1 Recursive factorial routine in assembler

15
Using the Stack The stack can eliminate the need for declaring subroutine data variables in many cases For example, any routine that calls another one must save and restore R7 Stack ‘em up!

16
Costs and Benefits Using a stack incurs the cost of extra subroutine calls for PUSH and POP A large chunk of memory might go to waste Subroutines in early languages like FORTRAN, with no recursion, could be completely static (no extra overhead for subroutine calls)
