   Interpreter for a subset of Knuth's MMIX in pure XSLT

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


As an exercise in XSLT programming, we in Propylon have implemented a MMIX 
Interperter (http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/mmix.html) in pure XSLT.

A sample program that calculates PI is embedded with the interpreter. It 
can be found at:

Note to MMIX programmers - pseudo directives 
are not supported in this release.

Note  that the calculation is very slow as it is based on Zoeller's 
Congruential Interator algorithm but is serves as an useful short example.

For XALAN-C/Pyana users a sample program is included. The stylesheet should 
work with any reasonably conformant
XSLT  implementation.

-- Python Program invoking Xalan via Pyana --
# Pyana example execution of MIX PI calculation stylesheet
import Pyana

fo = open ("pi-mix.xsl","r")
xsl = fo.read()
fo = open ("pi.xml", "r")
xml = fo.read()
print Pyana.transform2String(source=xml, style=xsl)

-- Output --
