It's sometimes written navm instead of NaVM, both are the same

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of NaVM with its very basic instuctions, which will serve as a demo. Remember, NaVM is not built to be a standalone application, it's meant to be used as a library (originally built for QScript, but everyone's free to use it).

See the documents in spec/ to know about NaVM syntax, built in instructions, and more. And source/app.d for example on adding new instructions.


You need to have these present on your machine to build NaVM:

  1. dub
  2. dlang compiler (I've only tested with dmd)



dub fetch navm
dub build navm -b=release -c=demo

Following this, you will have the demo NaVM binary (named demo) with very basic functionality.

You can now run NaVM bytecode using:

~/.dub/packages/navm-*/navm/demo path/to/bytecodefile

The demo program contains 4 additional instructions:

  • writeInt - pops 1 integer from stack, and writes it to stdio.
  • writeDouble - pops 1 double from stack, and writes it to stdio.
  • writeChar - pops 1 char from stack, and writes it to stdio.
  • writeStr - pops 1 string from stack, and writes it to stdio.
  • printDebug - prints how many elements are in stack, and _stackIndex to stdio.
