If anyone knows sparc assembly language could they post me a simple example of a loop using branch mnemonics that does a counter or something simple like that?

sparc loop

I'm just learning sparc, but try something like this:

clr %L1 ! clear register
mov 10,%L2 ! put maximum count in


inc %L1 ! adds one to L1 reg

cmp %L1,%L2 ! compare
blt STARTLOOP0 ! if L1 < L2 go to start of loop
nop ! the command after a branch is always
! performed, so put a null op in,
! unless you want something done there
