143 This section belatedly adjusts the zasm assembler so that it can handle
the LONG_MPY changes that have taken place. However, the test.S assembler
test script is still not properly testing the multiplies--at least it will
succeed on everything else.
dgisselq 2335d 12h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
126 Lots of changes preparing the assembly for an instruction set change. While
implemented, they are still commented out via #ifdef LONG_MPY. By defining
LONG_MPY, this new change set will take place.
dgisselq 2356d 13h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
96 Added the longjump functionality, so that the assembler will properly assemble
instructions to arbitrary 32-bit addresses.
dgisselq 2405d 14h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
69 This implements the "new Instruction Set" architecture for the Zip CPU. It's
a massive change set, that touches just about everything but probably not
enough of everything. Please see the spec.pdf for a description of this
new architecture.
dgisselq 2477d 21h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
60 Fixed assembler processing of jump instructions, so that the new fast
return instruction can be used. The test file was modified to test
pipelined value passing within the CPU. That's where the value gets
(re)used before being stored back in the register file. As of this release,
all tests work.
dgisselq 2538d 22h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
46 A series of updates associated with getting Dhrystone to work. Includes
updates to getting multiple files to link/work together within the assembler,
as well as getting quoted quotations to work in the lexer, and better
include file support in the preprocessor.
dgisselq 2558d 16h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
36 *Lots* of changes to increase processing speed and remove pipeline stalls.

Removed the useless flash cache, replacing it with a proper DMA controller.

"make test" in the main directory now runs a test program in Verilator and
reports on the results.
dgisselq 2571d 00h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
34 Bunches of changes, although very little changed with the core itself.

Regarding the core, some bugs were fixed within zipcpu.v (the CPU part of the
core), so that the debugger can change the program counter. The debugger
can now halt the CPU and then view, examine, and modify registers to include
the program counter, although live changes to the CC register have not been

There was also a bug in the stall handling of the wishbone bus delay line. This
has now been fixed.

Moving outwards to the system, some parameters have been added to zipsystem
to make it more configurable for whatever environment you might wish to place
it within. Other minor clean ups have taken place, mostly to the internal

Lots of changes, though, to the assembler. The big one is the implementation
of #define macros, C style. Several buggy macros were in sys.i. These have
been fixed. The Makefile has been adjusted so that the build of test.S, which
depends upon sys.i, is now properly dependent upon sys.i for make purposes.
Further, not only will zpp, the assembler preprocessor, handle #define macros,
it will also recursive #defines. The assembler expression evaluator has also
been updated to properly handle both operator precedence, as well as modulo

The master system test file, test.S, found in the sw/zasm directory has been
updated to reflect these new capabilities. (I really need to move it to the
bench/asm directory, so you may expect that change sometime later.)
dgisselq 2596d 19h /zipcpu/trunk/sw/zasm/asmdata.cpp
26 Added signed and unsigned multiply opcodes to the assembler.

An opcode was added for a 'negate' instruction. This is a derived instruction
that turns into two instructions. Neg RX becomes an XOR -1,Rx followed by an
Add 1,Rx command. (Move 1+Rx,Rx would've stalled the bus by one cycle.)

Instructions now keep track of the source linenumber (but not yet filename)
where they were issued. That way, upon an error in linking at the end, the
instruction can be referenced by the proper line number. (Filenames are still
not implemented, hence include files may reference the line number of the
include file with no proper indication of that ... yet).

The OBJFILE intrface now supports a clos() function. This allows the
assembler to close and delete the object file for those cases where the
preprocessor encounters an error.

The master test file, sw/test.S, was adjuted as follows: many of the tests
within it can be separated by #ifdef lines. Hence, if you only wish to test
whether or not CARRY works, undefine all of the other ifdefs but leave the
CARRY_TEST defined. (PUSH_TEST, a test of the PUSH(RX,SP) macro, still doesn't
work because the assembler still doesn't implement macros. This is still a
coming feature.)

The master test file now has tests for the break function, as well as for the
new trap CC bit and the new multiply signed and unsigned instructions in the

Many error conditions were added to the assembler preprocessor. Now, if an
EOF is encountered in anything but the INITIAL state (not within a macro),
an error will be created. Likewise, any unrecognized preprocessor directive
will create an error.

The lexical analyzer now supports character values, such as 'a' or '\n' using
a C-type syntax. (Tri-graphs are not supported.) It also supports such
extended syntax as '$GPG'. (Hmm ... wonder why I needed that?)

The lexical analyzer now recognizes and properly supports #line preprocessor
output statements. Theselines are then used to track what source line errors
occurr at.

Operand precedence has been adjusted, so the assembler should be able to
properly handle things like 5+3*8 and get the same number answer as 3*8+5.
(This has been implemented, although not thoroughly tested.)

Upon completion of any preprocessing file, the assembler now checks the status
of the preprocessor as returned by its exit code. Anything other than a zero
status will cause the assembler to delete the resulting object code file it is
building and exit with an error.

The assembler also supports the '-d' command line flag to turn on debugging in
the yacc processor (setting yydebug). It'll produce a lot of debugging output,
but it just might help to figure out what 'syntax error' is actually taking

13 Finally! The beginnings of the new assembler. It's not really polished yet,
and it is quite clunky, but it works!! (Lots of bugs and features left to
fix/implement: #include, #define macro(), #line tracking through the
preprocessor, a means of finding include files (and the preprocessor!) and
more. But, as a beginning, the basics are functinoal.
