spim is a self-contained simulator that will run MIPS32 assembly language programs. It reads and executes assembly language programs written for this processor. spim also provides a simple debugger and minimal set of operating system services. spim does not execute binary (compiled) programs.
The current version of spim is 7.3 (August 2006), which is a minor release that cleans up a number of bugs in 7.2:
Fix for flex 2.5.33 (internal change broke spim's scanner).
Exception handler can be a semicolon-separated list of files that will be loaded in order. On Unix, SPIM_EXCEPTION_HANDLER environment variable is consulted before command line arguments.
Memory corruption caused spim to crash when label was defined twice in succession.
PCSpim updates register and memory display after a parse error while reading a file.
Eliminated unnecessary null char between strings in list of strings produced by .asciiz.
Makefiles (in spim/ and xspim/) now contain clearly defined paths for installing executables, exception handler, and man pages. The man pages are no longer installed by the "make install" command.
Change psfig to epsfig in spim.tex (does anyone still use this obsolete documentation?).
Everything except the installation program. You can take the installation directory from a Windows installation without problems and copy into your Wine apps directory.
What does not
Installation program, because it uses Net Framework 3.5.
What was not tested
Nothing, all tested and OK.
In some Wine configs you can experience a movement of the "Console". You can fix this disabling "Allow window manager control windows" in "winecfg (Wine Config or Wine Options)" and going to "Graphics" label.
