Call this function from the main program. In addition, write a function called print_array that accepts an integer array and prints it out in this format: The array is [0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9] Use this function to print out the array before and after sorting. ORDER ARRAY ELEMENTS Determine i th element, i =0,1,2, ….,n i =0 i =1 Find smallest number among elements i , i +1, i +2,….,n Place the smallest number in the i th element This can be done using 2 “for loops” i =0,1,2,3,…..,n j =i+1,i+2,i+3,…..,n i j =i+1,i+2,….,n Compare i th element with j th element and swap if j th element is smaller 3 BIT OPERATIONS Bitwise operation Symbol AND OR EXCLUSIVE-OR NOT Shift right Shift left & | ^ ~ >> << BIT OPERATIONS “&” AND Operator A = 0xa2; B = 0x34; C = A&B; A= 1010 0010 = 0xa2 B= 0011 0100 = 0x34 A&B = 0010 0000 = 0x20 “|” OR operator A= B= A|B = 1010 0010 0011 0100 1011 0110 = 0xa2 = 0x34 = 0xb6 “^” XOR operator A= B= A^B = 1010 0010 0011 0100 1001 0110 = 0xa2 = 0x34 = 0x96 4 BIT OPERATIONS “<<” Left shift operator Assume A is a short int, i.e. a 16bit integer. A = 0xa234 = 1010 0010 0011 0100 A<<4 = 0x2340 = 0010 0011 0100 0000 A<<2 = 0x88d0 = 1000 1000 1101 0000 Vacancies in the right most bits are filled with zeroes. BIT OPERATIONS “>>” Right shift operator: A = 0xa234 = A>>4 = 0x0a23 = 1010 0010 0011 0100 0000 1010 0010 0011 Vacancies in the left most bits are filled with zeroes. 5 TASKS IN LAB Task 2 Write a function called bit_merge that accepts 2 four digit hexadecimal numbers (16 bits each) and combines their bits into a single 32 bit number as follows: void main() { unsigned short hn1 = 0x1234; unsigned short hn2 = 0xabcd; int result; result = bit_merge(hn1,hn2); printf(“\n Merging 0x%x and 0x%x results in \n”, hn1, hn2, result); } TASKS IN LAB Task 2 The output should look like: merging 0x1234 and 0xabcd results in 0xabcd1234 To do this requires a left shift of hn2 by 16 bits and then a bitwise OR of hn1 with the left-shifted hn2. Remember that hn2 needs to be left shifted into a 32 bit variable, or all the data will be lost when shifted. Be careful of data types (int versus unsigned short), and think about what is going on at a bit level. 6 TASKS IN LAB Task 3 Write a function that accepts a decimal number between 0 and 255 and prints it out on the screen using 8 binary digits for representation. void binary_print(short a) { // Print an error message if a is not between 0 and 255 // Find LSB and print on screen // Find Next MSB and print on screen // …. // Find MSB and print on screen } TASKS IN LAB Task 4 Parity method for error detection Assume that your data sequence has 7 bits and an eighth bit is added to achieve even parity. Write a program that accepts an 8-bit word (or equivalently, a 2 digit hex number) and does an even parity check on the input data. If the input data violates even parity, print out an error message 7 ...
