Koi-vm-ruby is a simple proof-of-concept Virtual Machine for the Koi programming language written in Ruby. It was created with learning in mind and is written so that it is easy to understand and play with. This virtual machine implements an instruction set specifically designed for running the Koi programming language. A compiler for producing compatible bytecode can be found at the koi-reference-compiler.
The standard 'Hello world!', KoiVM style:
require 'koi' include KoiVMRuby VM.new.run [ PUSH_STRING, "Hello World!\n", PRINT ] #=> Hello world!
And an old-school 'Blast off' example:
require 'koi' include KoiVMRuby VM.new.run [ PUSH_INT, 11, PUSH_INT, 1, SUBTRACT, DUP, TO_STRING, PRINT, PUSH_STRING, ", ", PRINT, DUP, PUSH_INT, 0, EQUAL, JUMP_UNLESS, -13, PUSH_STRING, "Blast Off!\n", PRINT ] #=> 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, Blast off!
This VM is normally installed as part of Koi's default toolchain. However if you would like to install it on it's own you can do so by installing the gem like so:
gem install koi-vm-ruby
require 'rubygems' require 'koi-vm-ruby' include KoiVMRuby vm = VM.new vm.run( bytecode )
