Project Description

MDK (MIX Development Kit) provides tools for developing and executing, in a MIX virtual machine, MIXAL programs. The MIX is Donald Knuth's mythical computer, described in the first volume of The Art of Computer Programming, which is programmed using MIXAL, the MIX assembly language. MDK includes a MIXAL assembler (mixasm), a MIX virtual machine (mixvm) with a command line interface, a Guile-based virtual machine (mixguile), a GTK+ based GUI (gmixvm), and a mixvm-Emacs interface (mixvm.el). MDK utilities are extensible using Scheme.

MIXAL compliance fixes were made. NOP now accepts an F-spec. Invalid F-spec values are reported as warnings instead of errors, since they can be legitimately (if hackishly) used. gmixvm now has a history popup in the terminal input dialog. The load file dialog now remembers the last directory. I1 and I2 in mixvm were swapped to their correct position. smem in mixvm now correctly handles negative zero. Bugfixes were made.
