Hello, I am supposed to write a code in MIPS to do the following below. Basically, you enter an integer,
and it should check to see if it is a palindrome, and if not it will output the number, and keep adding the
numer backwards to it, outputting it, and stopping when it is a palindrome. It will output 10 numbers
and if the 10th number isnt a palindrome, it stops.
I'm having trouble writing this code in MIPS, i was hoping someone could offer up some ideas?
My main trouble is the loop in the Palindrome function. I believe the code I wrote for the
reverse function works well.
Below is something I quickly wrote as a guideline while writing it into MIPS.
int Reverse(int num)
int remainder = 0;
int rev = 0;
while (num != 0)
remainder = num % 10;
num = num/10;
rev = rev*10 + remainder;
cin >> num;
cout << num;
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
if ( num != Reverse(num))
num = num + Reverse(num);
cout << " " << num;
if (num == Reverse(num))
cout << " ";
cout << "Please enter an integer : " << endl;
to make loops in assembly you need to use something similar to the goto function in c.
create a point to "goto". example:
move $t0, $zero #set $t0 to 0 for your counter.
beq $t0, 10, pos2 #terminate the loop if $t0 equals 10
addi $t0, $t0, 1
#do your calculations here
j pos1 #start the next iteration of the loop
here are a couple pdfs on converting from c to assembly:
as far as reading the number and reversing it it will be much easier to do as a string although the program will use a lot more memory than reading the number as an integer. also one question do you need to find if the number is a palidrome in binary or decimal?
