spu decompiler. sort of.
This decompiles spu binaries (ELFs).
Right now it finds subroutines and all references between them.
It also tries to determine if a subroutine is reachable, but the problem of 
plain statical analysis is, that it doesn't find indirect calls to subroutines.
Next it builds the control flow graph for all subroutines and determines the edge types.
So please help me a little with this project :)


If anyone knows how to use anergistic, please document it. Specially how to DMA

An example would be excelent

-> Look into channel.c if you want to control DMA directly from C code (you will have to write your own handler) or use the provided script. MFC (memory flow controller) class controls the communication done by wrch and rdch from the SPU (e.g. DMA, mailbox, etc.) and the SPU class has methods to load and run spu binaries. You should look up on how to communicate with an SPU/how to communicate from the SPU (to emulate the instructions) in the official Cell/B.E. docs at IBM. -> Also: (runs aim_spu_module)
