@Myvar
Well just let me know ?
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
The shift left and right emitters aren't implemented yet. Maybe that's a good starter?
Emile Badenhorst
@Myvar
Sweet, irs lile 6 am and 2 deg celcius so one i convinced my self to get out of bed il take a look
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
Hi everyone, I’m here to help
Phil Garcia
@tgiphil
btw. I've had good success with QEMU via serial and GDB on Windows. Currently using v2.11.0.0.
Kudzu
@czhower
They finally fixed the critical bug on windows but it took them like 6 years to make a one line change... I just dont turst QEMU on Windows after that. They made it clear they only care about Linux.
@charlesbetros Can you assit Marcelo?
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
Hi @charlesbetros , where would be the best place to start?
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
Hi! Welcome. Will you be around in 35 to 40 mins?
Have to put my daughter to bed
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
Yes, thanks

Have you had a chance to look through the XSharp repository?
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
yes, some days ago
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
Are you wanting to work on X# Arm or any X# platform?
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
X# Arm would be great
I'm checking the repo out now
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
Maybe the best place to start would be create ARM counterparts for classes in XSharp.x86 like Register, OpCode, NASM?
I understand that the work on NASM depends on what will be the Assembler selected to have the asm target file generated
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
Yeah I think so
We will need to create a different tool runner if we don't use nasm
It will be called after whatever assembler we choose
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
yes, we will need because NASM only supports x86
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
Eventually we will emit our own binary but until we get to that we can use some open source. I don't know much about the options. Can you come up with some recommendations pros/cons and put it here?
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
The first alternatives I have found are GNU Assembler (Christopher's recommendation), Keil armasm (maybe ARM company itself has more options) and Microsoft armasm
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
GNU Assembler is open source, Keil armasm seems to generate better optimized code and Microsoft armasm works with PE/COFF format
the issue with Keil and Microsoft maybe are their license terms (I'm not sure)
But I can investigate that and come up with more details
This is all that I know so far
Kudzu
@czhower
glad to see activity..I have only jealousy till I can rejoin :)
Charles Betros
@charlesbetros
@czhower @mterwoord any thoughts on an assembler for Arm?
Matthijs ter Woord
@mterwoord
maybe something ourselves using that json stuff?
Kudzu
@czhower
I took a look a few weeks ago but didnt get a chance to deeply evaluate any of the ARM assemblers.
Matthijs ter Woord
@mterwoord
best imo would be something in .net
Kudzu
@czhower
I think we should first use something like NASM instead of direct binary emission for ARM.. easier to debug output, simpler to implement etc. Im sure int he list fo ARM assemblers there is one that is usable.
someone needs to make a list, evaluate them and present the results wtih prime candidates.
Matthijs ter Woord
@mterwoord
would be a great project for someone to get going with: find a suitable arm assembler for us...
Kudzu
@czhower
yes...!
adn gnu and there are a bunch of others. vasm looks like its current and maintained but havent looked deeper
Marcelo Caetano
@marcelocaetano
I don't think so... it only supports till ARMv4
Raspberry Pi is ARMv6
although old code should work on new processors
its list has Raspberry-Pi VideoCore IV but the line that says "architecture ARMv1 to ARMv4, including THUMB mode" let me disappointed
actually taking all the RPi models in consideration we have ARMv8 in use as well
but I think binaries developed with ARMv6 ISA would work well on ARMv8
Kudzu
@czhower
arm is backwards compat right? But yeah, generally we want smoething that is current and well maintained.
Matthijs ter Woord
@mterwoord
not sure on backwards compat..
