Mips Array/Loop assistance
I am working on a small Mips program for my Comp Organization class and I am having an impossible time with advancing an array which I wish to print integers from. I have a loop that terminates at the proper interval however I cannot seem to get the next value in the array.
I have tried bit shifts which leads to to either print the first value followed by a constant set of the second value or leads to memory address faults. I have tried adding 4 to the address in an attempt to move to the next 4 bytes. I am at a loss. I have reviewed the text, the class slides, and days of google searches. Can someone help me see a solution? Code attached.
.data numWords: .word 12 bytes: .word 4 values: .word 17 .word -50 .word 3 .word -23 .word -60 .word 97 .word 20 .word -82 .word 53 .word 30 .word -17 .word 142 wordString: .asciiz "The 32-bit integers are\n" newline:.asciiz "\n" # Your code goes below this line .text main: li $v0, 4 # Load print sys command la $a0, wordString # Load wordString to $a0 syscall la $s2, values # Load address of array lw $a0, 0($s2) # Load address to arg la $t2, numWords # Load number of words lw $s1, 0($t2) # Set loop upper bound to numWords li $s0, 0 # Set loop lower bound to 0 WordLoop: li $v0,1 # Load Print int sys call add $s2, $s2, 4 # Advance memory to next four bytes syscall addi $s0, $s0, 1 # Add 1 to loop indexer bne $s0, $s1, WordLoop # If loop equals less than word count continue j Exit # Else exit Exit: jr $ra # Jump to return addr ($ra)

Sorry, but homework questions are not allowed as per The Forum Rules.
I will say that your problem is indeed in your traversing of the array.
Good luck. If you have any specific questions about concepts, please feel free to ask them.
