@mipsy{} is a MIPS simulator designed to execute simple register based
MIPS assembly code. It is a minimalist MIPS virtual machine, which
allows unlimited registers.
Its features are:
@itemize @minus
sufficient support of MIPS instruction set
illimited registers
@end itemize
It was written by Benoit Perrot as an @acronym{LRDE} member, so that
@acronym{EPITA} students could exercise their compiler projects after
the instruction selection but before the register allocation.
It is implemented in C++ and Python. Be aware that @mipsy{} does not need
a Python interpreter to run ; it is required to maintain @mipsy{}.
Information about @mipsy{} can be found on @href{@wiki{}/Projects/Mipsy,
@mipsy{} Home Page}, and feedback can be sent to
@href{, @acronym{lrde}'s Projects Address}.
@acronym{LRDE} stands for @href{, Laboratoire de
Recherche et Dévelopment de l'@acronym{EPITA}}, i.e., the Research and
Development Labof @acronym{EPITA}, the @href{, Ecole
Pour l'Informatique et les Techniques Avancées}.
@href{FIXME:, Andrew Appel's home page} includes links to material
related to compilers theory, and some information about the
@href{FIXME:, Modern Compiler Implementation} book series.
More information on Python can be found on
@href{, Python Home Page}.
