A Register Machine Package

Project Description

A Register Machine package for Python3

You might take a look at the docs for a lot information about design, usage and the complete code documentation.

Installing PyRegisterMachine2

py_register_machine2 is a python3 package, so all you need to do is to place the project folder in your $PYTHONPATH. You are able to get the pythonpath using echo $PYTHONPATH and python3 -c "import sys; print(sys.path)".

So you are able to install the package using:

cd /usr/local/lib/python3.5/dist-packages/
git clone


python3 -m pip install py_register_machine2

Using PyRegisterMachine2

Using Prepared Machines

In py_register_machine2.machines is a bunch of modules providing a bunch of register machine definitions those are functions returning a 4-tuple: (processor, rom, ram, flash), maybe you need to invoke processor.setup_done().

Creating Your Own Machines

If the prepared machines do not match your requirements you might want to create your own machines, to do so you should study the docs here.

Instructionset, Machinecode and Assembly

The Instructionset of a machine is defined by obhects inherited from py_register_machine2.core.commands.BaseCommand, a bunch of ready-to-use commands is in py_register_machine2.commands.

The processor reads one word of data for the opcode, decodes this opcode and reads n words of data for n arguments. Machinecode can be witten using list objects like this:

program = [0x16, 0x01, 0x01] # using the py_register_machine2.commands.basic_commands instructionset
# this equals "ldi 0x01 ECR" and will halt the engine.

This machinecode can be programmed to a persistent device (ROM or Flash) using

# or

There is a basic Assembler in that uses the KASM2 assembly language to generate machiecode ( a list object)

The Assembler uses a configured Processor and an open stream to generate the machinecode:

from io import StringIO
progstr = "ldi 0x01 ECR"
asm = Assembler(processor, StringIO(progstr))
program = asm.assemble()

Once the ROM is programmed (the Processor starts executing code in the ROM) you are able to run the code using:
