91.305 Assignment 6:
The x86 Instruction Set and C-Language Compilation
Reading and Practice Problems
Read the following from Bryant and OHallaron, Chapter 3. Do
the practice problems as indicated for each section.
- Introduction (pp. 124125)
- 3.1, Historical Perspective (pp. 125128).
- 3.2, Program Encodings (pp. 128134).
- 3.3, Data Formats (pp. 135).
- 3.4, Accessing Information (pp. 136143); Practice Problems
3.1 and 3.2.
- 3.5, Arithmetic and Logical Operations (pp. 143148);
Practice Problem 3.6.
- 3.6, Control (pp. 148170); Practice Problem 3.12.
Since answers are given in the book, the practice problems are done
on the honor system. Basically, you should make an effort to solve
them, and then use the solutions as necessary to confirm your
Some of the practice problems (e.g., 3.2) suggest that you actually
sit down in front of a Linux machine, type in some C code, compile it
(using the -S switch, which generates the assembly), and
examine the result.
I highly recommend that you actually do this. It's a lot more
interesting when you can see the gcc compiler at work. If
you don't have an x86-based Linux machine of your own, log into one of
the departments machines (e.g., mercury) to do this.
To Turn In
Please turn in written solutions (prepared individually) for the
following homework problems (starting on page 231 of the text).
Its perfectly acceptable (or should I say, encouraged!) to
type in C code and compile it (with -S) to help figure out
