An interpreter for the ARM instruction set and an accompanying Jupyter kernel
IArm is an ARM interpreter for the ARMv6 THUMB instruction set (More specifically for the ARM Cortex M0+ CPU). It supports almost 100% of the instructions, and some assembler directives. There is also its Jupyter kernel counterpart so it can be used with Jupyter notebooks. Check out the /docs folder to see a technical overview and some example notebooks.
Install with pip
pip install iarm
Or clone the repo and install with setuptools
python setup.py install
To install the Jupyer kernel counterpart, after installation, run
python -m iarm_kernel.install
Import the arm module and instantiate an interpreter from the Arm class
import iarm.arm interp = iarm.arm.Arm()
To run code, pass the code into the evaluate method. Multiple lines can be sent in as well as one line at a time.
interp.evaluate(" MOVS R0, #5") interp.evaluate(""" MOVS R1, #3 ADDS R2, R0, R1 """)
By default, code is not run. The run method must be called.
interp.run() print(interp.register) # Print out the status of all the registers
Simply activate the iarm_kernel module and make a new notebook as an IArm notebook. Most of the magics have a 1 to 1 to the module. Refer to the notebooks in the /docs/examples folder and the %help magic.
