Cebollita is an entire system and tools package
for teaching Computer Architecture. It includes a C-like language
(C--), a compiler, an assembler, a linker, a loader, a utility to
format a raw disk, a primitive operating system and shell, a MIPS-like
ISA, and a software simulation of a machine that implements the ISA.
Students implement the ISA (preferrably using
them to the interactions among all these components. Each component is
simple enough that it can be modified easily, allowing design
tradeoffs to be experienced, rather than just discussed.
Cebollita means "small (green) onion" in Spanish. Real Mexican
restaraunts will prepare them for you as follows:
Simple and good. Virtues we should all strive for.
- Fry them in oil on high heat until tender (doesn't take long).
- Sprinkle them with salt and fresh lime juice.
