Assembly language (arrays)


I'm new to assembly language and everything seems a little complicated.

I'm programming an old MCU (68hc11), I'm trying to migrate from C language to assembly code using the 68hc11 instructions.


I want to solve 2 different situations:



I want to write a program in assembly that counts the number of POSITIVE, NEGATIVE, and ZERO values that exist inside a given array. DO NOTE that all values inside ARRAY could be all positive or all negative or all zeros,do you get me? So I should define the size of the variables that will store the quantity properly.

NOTE: The end of the array is: ARRAY+QUANTITY-1


Array: contains some random values

QUANTITY: represent the highest number of elements that the ARRAY can hold


I wrote this program in C:

int A[15], pos, neg, nul, i; [...] pos = 0; neg = 0; nul = 0; for (i = 0; i < 15; i++) { if (A[i] > 0) { pos++; } if (A[i] < 0) { neg++; } if (A[i] == 0) { nul++; } }

Now, I want to translate that but in assembly (I GOT STUCK IN HERE)

RWM EQU $0 ROM EQU $C000 VRESET EQU $FFFE QUANTITY EQU 800 ;MEANS THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF VALUES THAT THE ARRAY WILL CONTAIN ORG RWM POSITIVE RMB 2 NEGATIVE RMB 2 ZEROS RMB 2 ORG ROM START: END BRA END ARRAY DW 78,554,-44,-4,2547,0,-3,0,1,7,8, ORG VRESET DW START <h2>------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------</h2> <hr />


I want to obtain the absolute values of all the elements that are stored in a specific array.

ABSOLUTE will contain the absolute values of the elements stored in ARRAY (the size of ABSOLUTE must be related to the amount of elements inside ARRAY)

In C it looks like this:

#include <stdio.h> #define SIZE 16 int absolute(int array[], int ray[], int N) { for (int i=0; i<N; i++) ray[i] = array[i] * (array[i]<0?-1:1); } int main() { int array[SIZE] = {0,1,2,3,-4,5,6,7,-8,9,-10,11,12,13,14,20}; int ray[SIZE]; absolute(array,ray,SIZE); for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++ ) printf("The absolute value of %3i is %3i\n", array[i],ray[i]); return 0; }

Assembly should look like this (i got stuck in here)

RWM EQU $0 ROM EQU $C000 RESET EQU $FFFE ORG RWM ABSOLUTE RMB ;i must dfine a size depending on the amount of elements inside ARRAY ORG ROM Start: END BRA END ARRAY DW 4,144,447,-14,-555,-1147 ORG RESET DW Start

Can help me to make it work using the corresponding HC11 instructions?.

PS: I use these instructions: INSTRUCTIONS
