Description (last modified by Joel Sherrill)

We have permission from the author (Peter Magnusson) to convert this page:


to Rst and incorporate it into the SPARC CPU Supplement. The original website is no longer available and we have to reference archive.org. This information was quite useful to those who have dived into the details of the SPARC.

The conversion will need to be done by hand to ensure that the resulting Rst file is consistent with RTEMS Documentation Rst files. For the purposes of this ticket, assume the converted content will be placed as a new section at the end of the SPARC chapter in the CPU Supplement.


For a first cut, the ASCII figures on the website can be ASCII figures in the Rst. As a second pass, they should be processed with DITAA into PNG files.

There is a starting point for the conversion in Joel's personal git repository on the sparcv8 branch. The content has had a very basic sanity check but there is more to do. Known issues with formatting are noted in the file. This repo can be browsed at https://git.rtems.org/joel/rtems-docs.git/. Please submit patches against the repo for the file cpu-supplement/sparc_v8_stacks_regwin.rst.

This ticket is to track that conversion.
