Hi, I've never ever been taught how to actually program in assembler before, but an assignment I have requires me to create a small bit of assembly code to put into a program called WinDLX to test things such as processor pipelining.

All my 'program' in assembler has to do is generate DLX code that avoids stalls for the sequence of a=b+c and then d=e-f. To do this I know I need to define f before I add b and c to a, and store a before I do the subtraction to avoid stalls. Here is my code that I know is very close (as I remember seeing an example of this and it was similar, although I can't recall how it was done!) but for some reason the program WinDLX cannot load it because it claims there are errors with the code.


a:		.word		0
b:		.word		3
c:		.word		4
d:		.word		0
e:		.word		8
f:		.word		5

		.global		main
		lw r2, b
		lw r3, c
		lw r5, e
		add r1, r2, r3
		lw r6, f
		sw a, r1
		sub r4, r5, r6
		sw d, r4

		lw		r2,b
		lw		r3,c
		lw		r4,d
		lw		r5,e
		lw		r6,f
		trap	0
Thanks for any help with this!
