Hey guys I know little of C (specializing in JAVA) and my data structures course asked that I transfer this into MIPS using $a and $v registers... any help would be awesome!

#include <stdlib.h>
void *(memset)(void *s, int c, size_t n) {
    const unsigned char uc = c;
    unsigned char *su;
    for (su = s; 0 < n; ++su, --n) {
        *su = uc;
    }
    return s;
}    
void *(a_memmove)(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n) {
    char *sc1;
    const char *sc2;
    sc1 = dest;
    sc2 = src;
    if (sc2 < sc1 && sc1 < sc2 + n) {
        for (sc1 += n, sc2 += n; 0 < n; --n) {
            *--sc1 = *--sc2;
        }
    } else {
        for (; 0 < n; --n) {
            *sc1++ = *sc2++;
        }
    }
    return (dest);
}
char *(a_strcat)(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n) {
    char *s;
    for (s = dest; *s != '\0'; ++s)
        ;
    for (; 0 < n && *src != '\0'; --n) {
        *s++ = *src++;
    }
    *s = '\0';
    return (dest);
}

1st: please use code tags when posting code. If you don't know how to do that you can read the links in my signature.

2nd. Many compilers will produce assembly language printouts of the c code. Check your c compiler to see if it has options to do that. If not, I don't know MIPS assembly, so I can't help you.

With which part do you have problem?
