- Designing, implementing, and calling low-level I/O procedures
- Implementing and using a macro
- Implement and test your own ReadVal and WriteVal procedures for signed integers.
- Implement macros getString and displayString. The macros may use Irvine’s ReadString to get input from the user, and WriteString to display output.
- getString should display a prompt, then get the user’s keyboard input into a memory location
- displayString should print the string which is stored in a specified memory location.
- readVal should invoke the getString macro to get the user’s string of digits. It should then convert the digit string to numeric, while validating the user’s input.
- writeVal should convert a numeric value to a string of digits, and invoke the displayString macro to produce the output.
- Write a small test program that gets 10 valid integers from the user and stores the numeric values in an array. The program then displays the integers, their sum, and their average.
- We will be testing this program with positive and negative values.
- User’s numeric input must be validated the hard way: Read the user’s input as a string, and convert the string to numeric form. If the user enters non-digits other than something which will indicate sign (e.g. ‘+’ or ‘-‘), or the number is too large for 32-bit registers, an error message should be displayed and the number should be discarded.
- Conversion routines must appropriately use the lodsb and/or stosb operators.
- All procedure parameters must be passed on the system stack.
- Addresses of prompts, identifying strings, and other memory locations should be passed by address to the macros.
- Used registers must be saved and restored by the called procedures and macros.
- The stack must be “cleaned up” by the called procedure.
- The usual requirements regarding documentation, readability, user-friendliness, etc., apply.
- Submit your text code file (.asm) to Canvas by the due date.
- For this assignment you are allowed to assume that the total sum of the numbers will fit inside a 32 bit register.
- When displaying the average, you may round down (floor) to the nearest integer. For example if the sum of the 10 numbers is 3568 you may display the average as 356. page 1 of 2
PROGRAMMING ASSIGNMENT 6: Designing low-level I/O procedures Written by: Sheperd Cooper Please provide 10 signed decimal integers. Each number needs to be small enough to fit inside a 32 bit register. After you have finished inputting the raw numbers I will display a list of the integers, their sum, and their average value. Please enter an signed number: 156 Please enter an signed number: 51d6fd ERROR: You did not enter a signed number or your number was too big. Please try again: 34 Please enter a signed number: -186 Please enter a signed number: 115616148561615630 ERROR: You did not enter an signed number or your number was too big. Please try again: -145 Please enter a signed number: 5 Please enter a signed number: +23 Please enter a signed number: 51 Please enter a signed number: 0 Please enter a signed number: 56 Please enter a signed number: 11 You entered the following numbers: 156, 34, -186, -145, 5, 23, 51, 0, 56, 11 The sum of these numbers is: 5 The rounded average is: 1 Thanks for playing!
- Number each line of user input and display a running subtotal of the user’s numbers.
- Implement procedures ReadVal and WriteVal for floating point values, using the FPU.
To ensure you receive credit for any extra credit options you did, you must add one print statement to your program output PER EXTRA CREDIT which describes the extra credit you chose to work on. You will not receive extra credit points unless you do this. The statement must be formatted as follows…
