Tool to generate BYTE sequences for Go assembly as generated by YASM/GAS (for Intel) or GAS (for ARM).
Make sure either YASM or GAS is installed on your platform. Note that YASM takes precedence over GAS if both are installed.
GAS (Intel/AMD64 or ARM):
gas (GNU Assembler) will already be installed as it is part of binutils, but if need be, you can eg. do as follows:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ yasm --version yasm 1.2.0 Compiled on Sep 30 2013. Copyright (c) 2001-2011 Peter Johnson and other Yasm developers. Run yasm --license for licensing overview and summary.
go get -u github.com/minio/asm2plan9s
Note that AVX512 support is currently only available for GAS.
$ more example.s // VPADDQ XMM0,XMM1,XMM8 $ asm2plan9s example.s $ echo example.s LONG $0xd471c1c4; BYTE $0xc0 // VPADDQ XMM0,XMM1,XMM8
The instruction to be assembled needs to start with a
// preceded by either a single space or a tab character.
The preceding characters will be overwitten by the correct sequence (irrespective of its contents) so when changing the instruction, rerunning
asm2plan9s will update the BYTE sequence generated.
Starting position of instruction
The starting position of the
// comment needs to follow the (imaginary) sequence with either a single space or a space followed by a back slash plus another space (see support for defines below).
Upon first entering an instruction you can also type eg
LONG $0x00000000; BYTE $0x00 // VZEROUPPER to trigger the assembler.
Support for defines
If you are using #define for 'macros' with the back-slash delimiter to continue on the next line, this will be preserved.
\ // VPADDQ XMM0,XMM1,XMM8
will be assembled into
LONG $0xd471c1c4; BYTE $0xc0 \ // VPADDQ XMM0,XMM1,XMM8
asm2plan9s works nicely together with asmfmt in order to format the assembly code (in a similar style to
