Unformatted text preview: 1 University of California, Berkeley College of Engineering Computer Science Division EECS Fall 2001 John Kubiatowicz Homework Quiz (HW #2) SOLUTIONS September 19, 2001 CS152 Computer Architecture and Engineering This quiz covers one of the problems from homework #2. Good Luck! Your Name: SID Number: Discussion Section: Total: 2 General Base Conversions In homework problem 3.22, you were asked to write a MIPS assembly language program to convert an ASCII decimal string to 32-bit integer. For this quiz, construct a similar program that can convert a decimal string into an arbitrary-precision integer. The first argument (a0) contains a pointer to a null-terminated input string The Second argument (a1) contains a pointer to an array of words in memory for the result, least-significant word first. On exit, v0 will contain the number of 32-bit words in the result (at least 1), or an error. This procedure (call it atoapi) must adhere to all MIPS conventions If any character in the string (before the final null character) is not a legal character for the specified...
