Unformatted text preview: is left in %eax at the end of the loop as a return value. We can see that i is held in register %edx, since this register is used as the basis for two conditional tests. B. The instructions on lines 2 and 4 set %edx to n-1. C. The tests on lines 5 and 12 require i to be nonnegative. D. Variable i gets decremented by instruction 4. E. Instructions 1, 6, and 7 cause x*y to be stored in register %edx. F. Here is the original code: 706 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 APPENDIX B. SOLUTIONS TO PRACTICE PROBLEMS int loop(int x, int y, int n) { int result = 0; int i; for (i = n-1; i >= 0; i = i-x) { result += y * x; } return result; } Problem 3.13 Solution: [Pg. 131] This problem gives you a chance to reason about the control ﬂow of a switch statement. Answering the questions requires you to combine information from several places in the assembly code: 1. Line 2 of the assembly code adds 2 to x to set the lower range of the cases to 0. That means that the minimum case label is ¾. 2. Lines 3 and 4 cause the program to jump to the default case when the adjusted case value is greater than 6. This implies tha...
