University of Florida EEL 4744 Drs. E. M. Schwartz &A. Antonio Arroyo Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering Professors in ECE Page 1/5 PARAMETER PASSING 15-Mar-01 11:29 AM PARAMETER PASSING METHODS How do you pass parameters between the subroutines (or interrupts) and the main routine or other subroutines? 1. Pass the parameter(s) (data or pointer) in the internal registers. 2. Pass the parameter(s) immediately after the call instruction, i.e. in the program memory space. (This requires that the parameter(s) be fixed at assembler time.) 3. Pass a pointer to the location of the parameter(s) immediately after the call instruction. 4. Pass the parameter(s) on the stack prior to the call. (PSH) 5. Pass a pointer to parameter(s) on the stack prior to the call. (PSH) The Problem: Find the average of two numbers Solution 1: Pass the parameter(s) in the internal registers. Solution 1a: Pass the parameter data in the internal registers.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
