Build

The project can be built using cargo. You can also use one of the binaries provided for convenience.

cargo build --release

Note that you need at least rust 1.15.0. Use rustup on windows or if the packages of your distribution are too old.

Usage

You can specify the filename of the program you want to load as a parameter on the command line:

./2i-emulator doc/examples/answer.2i

Or use the built-in load command:

./2i-emulator
> load doc/examples/answer.2i

You can also generate LaTeX documents for your 2i-programs:

./2i-emulator latex --autor "Erika Mustermann" answer.2i multiply.2i

See ./2i-emulator --help for more details.

Example

The following example (answer.2i) calculates the number 42 and writes it to the output register FE.

# The answer to everything: (FE) = 42

00000: 00 00001 | 00 | 000 0101 01 | 01 1100 0
00001: 11 00010 | 00 | 000 0000 01 | 00 0100 0
00010: 00 00001 | 00 | 000 0000 01 | 00 0101 0
00011: 00 00100 | 00 | 000 0000 01 | 00 1000 0
00100: 00 00101 | 00 | 000 0000 01 | 00 1000 0
00101: 00 00110 | 00 | 001 1110 01 | 01 1100 0
00110: 00 00000 | 11 | 001 0000 00 | 00 1100 0

Any character but 0, 1 and : is ignored inside commands and can be used for formatting. Every command can optionally be prefixed with its address followed by :. These must be strictly nondecreasing. Commands without an explicit address are assinged the next one. An empty line and everything after # is ignored.

Documentation

The doc folder contains a german documentation of the micro computer and its instructions. The api documentation of the emulator can be generated using cargo doc.
