MIPS I Collection Tools


Figured I've been working on material for a while and would throw these up for everyone that needs them in the future to use. It's very simple implementation; if I get enough people asking me to, I will write the methods for each of the instructions so you don't have to do it yourselves. I know Jump and Link was hard enough for me. :)


About the Author

I'm a very difficult person to describe because I'm all over the place. If I could sum me up into one word it would be insane. I'm an incredibly vibrant person. I love surfing, playing guitar, programming, photography, video games, skating, snowboarding, running parkour, hanging out with friends, spending time with my girlfriend, and much more. I'm currently enrolled in college courses and pursuing jobs in my area. Ask if you want to know more.

Change data at line 3 to 0xffff; the 0xfffc is with the 2 lower bits dropped.

Also change lines 106 and 111 to:

// 106:
return ToHex(ToDecimal(Address1) - ToDecimal(Offset.PadRight(8, '0')));

// 111:
return ToHex(ToDecimal(Address1) + ToDecimal(Offset.PadRight(8, '0')));

What is the purpose of this? Is it for use with a MIPS compatible IDE?
