So, I've learned my lesson in the past. I'm not experianced enough to design a program from start to finish in an elegant way. I'm not looking for code in any way, just some code flow suggestions if anyone has any. This is what I'm trying to do:
-Do a disassembled hex dump of some binary file
-Filter the text file to conform with the format of a SPIM assembly file
-copy filtered code into a new file
so.. I have a few files with contents like this:
Disassembly of section .text: 00400130 <__start>: 400130: 3c1c1002 lui gp,0x1002 400134: 279ca240 addiu gp,gp,-24000 400138: 0000f821 move ra,zero 40013c: 3c040040 lui a0,0x40 ... Hex dump of section '.data': 0x10000010 00000000 10012234 00000000 00000000 ......"4........
and I want to turn it into something like this:
.text main: lui $28,0x1002 addiu $28,$28,-24000 move $31,0 lui a0,0x40 ... .data 0x10000010 .word 00000000 .word 10012234 .word 00000000 .word 00000000 ...
Any Ideas about how to get this done? I basically just have to read a bunch of strings, convert things like "rsp" to "$29", chop out anything I don't need like "Disassembly of section .text:" , and I have to add lines like ".text" and so on. I plan on doing this with a bunch of vector functions. Are there any roads you can keep me from going down in this process?
