How Can I print 2 more string on this code:

la $a0, hello_msg
        li $v0, 4
        syscall


Why I cannot do it like this: !!! Loading the address into 3 differant addresses and then Calling the print_string()??? Please explain clearly....

la $a0, hello_msg1
la $a1, hello_msg2
la $a2, hello_msg3

        li $v0, 4
        syscall

im not an expert by any means, but assembly doesnt have highlevel functions like print_string(). are you writing this in C and compiling to assembly?

i probably cant help you, but i hope you dont mind if i tag along on this question.

Because print_string accept only one argument in $a0 and not in $a1, $a2

haha, I thought you were referring to an an actual MIPS microprocessor. But you're talking about a language called MIPS, which by the way, is not assembly, but more like C.

@kozaiwaniec

Did you never call an OS function with assembly? ;-)

no... that's why I was confused, and wanted to see the outcome of this question.

I did a little assembly using just a small instruction set on the PIC16 microcontroller to make an LED matrix display some messages, but that's the extent of my experience - doh! :)

Thanks.
