RISC-V disassembler can decode whole RV32IC

I think i can finish the RISC-V disassembler these two weeks. So far it can successfully decode RV32IC and ELF.

6 hours to fix my antlr netbeans plugin

Used near 6 hours to fix my netbeans-antlr plugin. I have to remember these: Netbeans build in antlr library have to in-sync with the antlr i am using in my pluging. If they in different version, unexpected result will come out. In windows, if antlr grammar has some mistakes (I meant not problems, your grammar…

We agreed to put x86 and risc-v assembler code into one project, so up one level for the java package, make it ready to stuck in risc-v code I will write the first risc-v assembly grammar and upgrade www.quantr.hk/asmweb to support risc-v test cases Learning vscode extension development, make myself ready to create a debugger…

Only 42 instructons are wrong. We are close to first milestone. Will study “Island Grammar”, hope it is the way to embed other antlr grammar from the main one.

Still working on the Antlr grammar to supports “Label” Very naive skillset on Antlr, just bouht the english version of this book, re-read it again. Chinese one not very comfortable to read. We think we can complete the first release of the assembler within 3 months.

As usual, meet in Festival Walk, sync-ed up our verilog skill, stuck in the “imm | label” to grammar. Only 64 instructions left.

Peter : Adding support to “Label”. Rest of people keep encoding x86 instructions.

Desmond completed encoded all “OR” instructions, that proves the encoding method is mature. We heading toward our first milestone, complete encode all intel basic instructions. Peter has added all test case. To see our progress, go to http://www.quantr.hk/asmweb

Assembler Meetup #23, 2019/12/07

Meet in MongKok. Mainly shorten the grammar. Jenny confirmed each instruction can be translated by same five functions. We confirmed if instruction has only one operand, we have to add byte/word/dword/qword, e.g.: inc byte [ax] And some instructions such as call doesn’t support all four combinations of byte/word/dword/qword, this “call byte [ax]” will report error…

Verilog syntax conflict

I guess syntax conflict or not is depend on how fpga vendor implement their verilog compile, nothing about the verilog language specification

Assembler Dev #16 2019/10/12

We finalize our error handling method, in both antlr grammar and java instruction “ADC” fully encoded, but still some combination mis-encoded. That means nasm don’t encode it, but we do https://www.quantr.hk/asmweb , our new testing site is launched

Getting started with RISC-V

https://dantalion.nl/en/getting-started-with-risc-v/ So you have heard of this RISC-V thing typically talked about in the context of microprocessors and to a lesser degree also for desktop processors. RISC-V is an open-source hardware instruction set architecture (ISA). Similarly to how X86 for Intel and AMD is a closed source ISA. Being an open-source ISA any manufacturer can…

2019/09/21, as usual, heading to our first milestone. Enhanced the full test output, added two filters. Filter out by instruction or by error. http://www.quantr.hk/wp-content/plugins/NasmWeb/public//viewOutput.php?path=/home/gitlab-runner/output/output_300588484.html Jenny and Kelvin is clearing the ADC instruction Desmond is extending https://gitlab.com/quantr/toolchain/quantr-executable-library to support Windows PE format

2019/09/14, we met in cityu again. I finished IMM in other project https://gitlab.com/quantr/toolchain/antlr-calculator-library . So Assembler’s parser will eat up the whole numeric string and then pass it to antlr-calculator-library, if it contains a maths expression, it return the final answer which is a number. I created another library to produce ELF output. Jenny and…
