Sail model of CHERI-MIPS ISA
This repository contains a model of the CHERI-MIPS ISA in the Sail language. Sail can build an ISA simulator, convert to theorem prover input or generate latex for inclusion in the CHERI ISA manual.
Sail via OPAM
We recommend to install the Sail compiler using the opam package. See the following wiki page.
The following emulator targets are available:
|mips||mips||MIPS emulator built from sail-generated OCaml|
|mips||mips_c||MIPS emualtor built from sail-generated C|
|cheri||cheri||CHERI-MIPS-256 emulator built from sail-generated OCaml|
|cheri||cheri_c||CHERI-MIPS-256 emualtor built from sail-generated C|
|cheri||cheri128||CHERI-MIPS-128 emulator built from sail-generated OCaml|
|cheri||cheri128_c||CHERI-MIPS-128 emualtor built from sail-generated C|
The C emulator is faster and therefore generally preferable but the OCaml one may be useful for debugging (e.g. any discrepancy in output indicates a bug in Sail or its external function libraries).
The default make target in the top-level directory will build all of the above.
