Why is the sp set to 261 in StaticsTestVME.tst?

Hi

I have written up my vm translator for the StaticTest program. One thing I notice is that in the StaticsTestVME.tst file the sp is initialized to 261, while in the StaticsTest.tst the RAM[0] is set to 256 instead.

The asm file generated by my vm translator will not pass the test unless I update the StaticsTest.tst and initialize the sp (RAM[0]) to 261 and then the test will complete successfully. But I wonder if it is something we expected to do or there is something I have missed out implementing something. Or that is really a mistake to have SP initialized to different values for the VME version and the asm version of the tests.

Thank you very much for your help!

Sounds like you may be jumping to Sys.init instead of calling it.

See this forum thread.
