SPARC is to maintain a policy of fostering both freedom and responsibility among student publications-freedom to pursue and to disseminate information without prior clearance or restraint, and responsibility to do so without engaging in libel, slander, undocumented allegations, attacks on personal integrity, unwarranted invasions of privacy, or techniques of harassment and innuendo.
SPARC, in cooperation with a station adviser and the station staff, is to provide for the monitoring of the station, its personnel, and programming to assure that these are in compliance with all codes and regulations (including licensing of the station and its personnel and all reporting requirements) of the Federal Communications Commission.

 SPARC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SPARC is a registered trademark of SPARC International, Inc., an organization established in 1989 to promote the SPARC and to provide conformance testing.
SPARC International was intended to "open" the SPARC architecture to make a larger ecosystem for the design, which has been licensed to several manufacturers, including Texas Instruments, Cypress Semiconductor, and Fujitsu.
The SPARC architecture was heavily influenced by the earlier designs of the RISC I and II from the University of California, Berkeley.

 ABI Compliance and Global Registers Usage in SPARC V8 and V9 Architecture
The SPARC V8PLUS ABI is an unofficial extension of the V8 ABI for V9 SPARC hardware.
For code written in SPARC assembly and inline templates, a new pseudo-instruction was introduced to specify global register usage, thereby allowing more reliable use of global registers.
Under V9, if the SPARC assembler detects a global register use that is not covered by a new pseudo-instruction, then the SPARC assembler issues an error message.

 SPARC Behavior and Implementation
This chapter discusses issues related to the floating-point units used in SPARC workstations and describes a way to determine which code generation flags are best suited for a particular workstation.
The SPARC architecture does not precisely define nonstandard arithmetic mode; it merely states that when this mode is enabled, processors that support it may produce results that do not conform to the IEEE 754 standard.
On SPARC floating-point units that implement nonstandard mode, enabling this mode causes the hardware to treat subnormal operands as zero and flush subnormal results to zero.

 Larceny Note #6: Larceny on the SPARC
The SPARC architecture is a RISC architecture descended from the Berkeley RISC projects.
The mnemonics chosen are close to the standard SPARC mnemonics; the only difference is that the assembly procedures require the specification of whether the (typically) second operand is a register or an immediate.
However, be aware that most modern SPARC implementations do have separate instruction and data caches, and that a write to a location cached in the instruction cache (for example when overwriting a code vector with a breakpoint instruction) may need to be followed by the appropriate number of IFLUSH instructions.
