Implement a Bytecode Machine
Posted On 11.05.2022
Alright, I’m back.
In this commit, I implemented a stack-based bytecode machine so we can execute the
code that was generated by the compiler.
It supports a very small instruction set right now, enough for working with i32 numbers,
storing and loading global and local variables, if expressions, function calls.
No string support for now.
let program = vec![ // print(10 + 5) OpCode::PUSH as i32, 10, // 000 OpCode::PUSH as i32, 5, // 002 OpCode::ADD as i32, // 003 OpCode::PRINT as i32, // 004 OpCode::HALT as i32, // 005 ]; let mut vm = VirtualMachine::new(); vm.load_program(program, 0); vm.run(&mut io::stdout());
We can pass a struct that implements the
std::io::Write trait in to the
method to act as the output device, for example,
