MMIXware: A RISC Computer for the Third Millennium
by Donald E. Knuth
Publisher: Springer 2004
Number of pages: 550
MMIX is a RISC computer designed by Donald Knuth to illustrate machine-level aspects of programming. This book constitutes a collection of programs written in CWEB that make MMIX a virtual reality. Among other utilities, an assembler converting MMIX symbolic files to MMIX objects and two simulators executing the programs in given object files are provided. The latest version of all programs can be downloaded from MMIX's home page. The book provides a complete documentation of the MMIX computer and its assembly language.
