Sorry, I've done BASIC and ASM , but no C ... (ASM for the stuff not available in BASIC in the "old times").
I can hardly read the stuff you are referring to.

schooner wrote:The popcnt() example compiles okay, and without any special _FB_SSE directives. Do you think a CUPID test is necessary for 64-bit compilation? Wouldn't a 64-bit processor already have a resident popcnt() instruction?
Also, how did you know that the "x as uinteger" would end up in the rcx register? Is this true for all naked functions? It is probably safe since the rcx register is considered destructible.

It should return -1 if POPCNT is supported, otherwise 0. Per the Intel instruction set reference available here, for CPUID function 1 (EAX=1), support for the POPCNT instruction is indicated by bit 23 of the feature information returned in ECX. If the value of bit 23 is 1, POPCNT is supported; if the value of bit 23 is 0, POPCNT is not supported. BT returns the value of the indexed bit in the carry flag, so the jnc performs the jump when the value of the indexed bit is 0. And in case this is not obvious, XOR RAX, RAX is a compact (as in minimum instruction length) method of loading zero into rax.
-1 = TRUE -- 0 = FALSE (definition of FB-Boolean var.) as from version >= 1.04.0schooner wrote:What is the reasoning for the -1?
