Rpn procedure, Computer Engineering

Apply this algorithm to your MASM program

1) Declare the following variables in your data segment:

.data

;

; These are the values of the variables

;

Variables               DWORD         17                                            ; A

DWORD         12                                            ; B

DWORD         4                                              ; C

DWORD         10                                            ; D

DWORD         5                                              ; E

;

; This is the expression to evaluate . . .

;

Expression BYTE              "AB-C*DE-/"                                      ; expression to evaluate

2) Create two procedures.  The first procedure should be the RPN calculator and is called from your main program procedure.  The parameters you pass to the RPN procedure from the main program are:

a) The address of the source RPN string.

b) The address of your variables list.

c) The length of our source RPN string.

You may choose any registers to use for passing parameters. The RPN procedure returns the calculated result in the EAX register. The RPN procedure must use the stack as discussed in Chapter 5 to compute the result.

3) The second procedure is called from your RPN procedure.  It determines if the character the RPN procedure is looking at is a variable or operator.  The parameters you pass to the second procedure are:

a) The character being examined.

b) Return code in EAX.  Zero if a variable, one if an operator.

4) Both procedures should be called using the CALL instruction ONLY.

5) When processing the RPN expression, your variable references should map to the variables array.  In other words, your program logic should locate the first DWORD value in the variables list from the letter "A", the second DWORD value from the variable "B", and so on.  You CANNOT hardcode numeric values in the RPN string!

6) Create a second set of variables and an associated RPN string of your choosing.  The second set must consist of AT LEAST four variables.  I can provide examples if you need them.

7) Run your program ONCE with both sets of variables and RPN strings.  Your main program should call the RPN procedure once with the first string, then a second time immediately thereafter with the second string.  Save both results in your data segment.

8) Your main program and all procedures should be in the same .asm file.

9) Submit the following for grading:

a) Your source code (softcopy).

b) A listing of your source code and a memory dump showing the results of both calls to the RPN procedure.
