Connecting High-Level Programming Constructs to Assembly Language Using Frances

PDF Download Download Paper


Central to computing is machine code generation. Upper level undergraduate students studying computing are quite familiar with high-level languages. Most undergraduate programs in computing begin with a course involving computer programming in a high- level language and as students progress through their studies they gain more experience with high-level languages. Not only is the machine code central to upper level courses in computer science, introductory programming texts address the issue of how high-level languages are translated to execute on the machine [3, 4].
