NAME



  Imager::Expr::Assem - an assembler for producing code for the Imager
  register machine



CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Imager::Expr::Assem;
  my $expr = Imager::Expr->new(assem=>..., ...)



DESCRIPTION

This module is a simple Imager::Expr compiler that compiles a low-level language that has a nearly 1-to-1 relationship to the internal representation used for compiled register machine code.

    Syntax

Each line can contain multiple statements separated by semi-colons.

Anything after ’#’ in a line is ignored.

Types of statements:
variable definition
  var name:type

defines variable name to have type, which can be any of n or num for a numeric type or pixel, p or c for a pixel or color type.

Variable names cannot include white-space.

operators Operators can be split into 3 basic types, those that have a result value, those that don’t and the null operator, eg. jump has no value.

The format for operators that return a value is typically:

  result = operator operand ...

and for those that don’t return a value:

  operator operand

where operator is any valid register machine operator, result is any variable defined with var, and operands are variables, constants or literals, or for jump operators, labels.

The set operator can be simplified to:

  result = operator

All operators maybe preceded by a label, which is any non-white-space text immediately followed by a colon (’:’).

BUGS

Note that the current optimizer may produce incorrect optimization for your code, fortunately the optimizer will disable itself if you include any jump operator in your code. A single jump to anywhere after your final ret operator can be used to disable the optimizer without slowing down your code.

There’s currently no high-level code generation that can generate code with loops or real conditions.
