vov (Vov's Obsessive Von-neumann) is a tool that emulates the behavior of a Von-neumann machine.
The vov's instructions make you able to perform simple arithmetic data manipulation. It is a very useful tool to see if your programs work and how. You can run a vov program from a file as you would any other shell, Perl, Python or Ruby program.
To configure vov, there is a shell script named configure in the top source directory. It is a standard GNU autoconf configure script, and so accepts the standard GNU configuration options (such as --prefix) To run it type
you@localhost$ ./configure [enter]
and add any options. The non-standard options that the script recognizes are described below. Running the script with the --help option will also provide a quick summary of the recognized options.
--enable-ansi[=STD]: compile against the standard ISO STD (default c99)
--disable-warnings: turn off all compiler warning flags (default: no)
--enable-gprof: creates a binary with profiling information usable with GNU gprof (default: no)
--enable-debug: turn on debugging code (default: no)
--enable-frame-pointer: enable callframe generation for debugging (default: no)
--with-psize: set the memory page size; it must be numeric and a power of two between 512 (OpenVMS VAX) and 16384 (Intel Itanium - IA64) bytes. If you know a working system with a memory page not in this range, please drop me a mail. This value is system dependent: touch it only if you know what you are doing. The default value should be right on almost all cases (default: 4096)
