Your makeup project will be similar to HW1, so this project will not depend on any other
projects. You will extent the original SPIM OS with some systems calls, you will also write a
number of assembly programs.
The operating system that comes with SPIM is very primitive. It only supports a few trivial
system calls, such as reading and printing, which are defined in /CPU/syscall.h .
First, download and study the SPIM package very carefully. Then, you will write and test the
following MIPS assembly files.
1. sort.asm : Reads from standard input positive integers (negative integer indicates the
end of list), then sorts the integers in increasing order and prints the sorted integers to
2. random.asm : produces 100 random positive integers and prints them to the standard
output. The last integer is a negative number.
3. search.asm : Reads from standard input an integer, then reads a number of positive
integers. Makes a search on the list. prints the result to the standard output.
4. type.asm: works like UNIX type command. Prints the contents of a file to the standard
output. At the end prints -1.
5. ls.asm: very simplified ls command of UNIX. prints the contents of the directory to
the standard output. Note that there is only one directory in our system.
6. Shell.asm: You will write a shell program that will be very similar to tcsh. Note that
current SPIM OS does not support many things such as file processing (read, write,
create) and multiprocessing. You will have to add many system calls to the new OS.
You will change the SPIM source code in two places: /CPU/syscall.h and
/CPU/syscall.cpp . Do not modify any other SPIM code other than these files. Your
shell will include the following features
a. Standard piping such as random | sort | search or type a.txt | sort
b. Standard redirection such as sort > res.txt < input.txt c. Back ground tasks such as type a.txt& d. Standard screen and keyboard read/write. Below are the instructions for homework submission 1.
