CS 61C L10 MIPS Branch II (3) Wawrzynek Fall 2007 © UCB Compiling C if into MIPS (2/2) ° Final compiled MIPS code: beq $s3,$s4,True # branch i==j sub $s0,$s1,$s2 # f=g-h(false) j Fin # goto Fin True: add $s0,$s1,$s2 # f=g+h (true) Fin: Note: Compiler automatically creates labels to handle decisions (branches). Generally not found in HLL code. Exit i == j? f=g+h f=g-h (false) i != j (true) i == j Compile by hand if (i == j) f=g+h; else f=g-h; CS 61C L10 MIPS Branch II (4) Wawrzynek Fall 2007 © UCB Review ° Memory is byte -addressable, but lw and sw access one word at a time. ° A pointer (used by lw and sw ) is just a memory address, so we can add to it or subtract from it (using offset). ° A Decision allows us to decide what to execute at run-time rather than compile-time. ° C Decisions are made using conditional statements within if , while , do while , for . ° MIPS Decision making instructions are the conditional branches : beq and bne . ° New Instructions: lw, sw, beq, bne, j

CS 61C L10 MIPS Branch II (5) Wawrzynek Fall 2007 © UCB From last time: Loading, Storing bytes 1/2 ° In addition to word data transfers ( lw , sw ), MIPS has byte data transfers: ° load byte: lb ° store byte: sb ° same format as lw , sw Ex: lb $s0, 3($s1) contents of memory location with address = sum of “3” + contents of register s1 is copied to the low byte position of register s0. CS 61C L10 MIPS Branch II (6) Wawrzynek Fall 2007 © UCB x Loading, Storing bytes 2/2 ° What do with other 24 bits in the 32 bit register? lb : sign extends to fill upper 24 bits byte loaded …is copied to “sign-extend” This bit xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx zzz zzzz Normally don't want to sign extend chars MIPS instruction that doesn’t sign extend when loading bytes: load byte unsigned: lbu
