4. mixrun

The MIX package provides a utility for assembling and executing a MIXAL file in one run. The utility is called mixrun. In its simplest form, it is called with the name of MIXAL source file as an argument, e.g.:

$ mixrun hello.mix

Registers A/X    +00000000000 +00041363636
                 +          0 +    8775582

Index Registers  +00000  +00000  +05670  +00000  +00000  +00000
                 +    0  +    0  + 3000  +    0  +    0  +    0

By default, a dump of the machine state is produced at the standard error. To direct it to another file, use ‘--dump’ (‘-d’) command line option, e.g.: mixrun --dump=hello.dump hello.mix.

To suppress the dump, use ‘--no-dump’ command line option.

You can also request producing a listing file. To do so, use ‘--list’ (‘-l’) option. By default, the name of the listing file is constructed by appending ‘.lst’ suffix to the base name of the input file. To use another file, give its name as an argument to ‘--list’, as in the example below:

$ mixrun --list=my.list ‘input’
# or:
$ mixrun -lmy.list ‘input

Notice, that an argument to ‘--list’ option must be separated from it by an equals sign, with no whitespace on any side of it. Similarly, when a short form, ‘-l’, is used, its argument must follow the option immediately.

As any other MIX program, mixrun understands two informational options. The option ‘--version’ (‘-V’) displays the program version and a short licensing information, and the option ‘--help’ (‘-h’) shows a short usage summary.
