I'm trying to create an array in MIPS Assembly, and then add all the elements together. However, when I try to assemble the following, it says
Error in read_array line 1 position 7: ".word" directive cannot appear in text segment Assemble: operation completed with errors.
Here's my assembly:
list: .word 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2 li $t0, 0x00000000 #initialize a loop counter to $t0 li $t4, 0x00000005 #last index of array li $t3, 0x00000000 #this will hold our final sum la $t1, list #the address of list is in $t1 loop: addi $t0, $t0, 0x00000001 #index++ add $t5, $t0, $t0 #array index X2 add $t5, $t0, $t0 #array index X2 again add $t6, $t5, $t1 #4x array index in $t6 lw $t2, 0($t6) #load list[index] into $t2 add $t3, $t3, $t2 #$t3 = $t3 + $t2 beq $t0, $t4, end j loop end:
