Unformatted text preview: remainder-computation loop, a higher-priority interrupting routine that needs the FPU can force a context switch in-between the instructions in the loop.) An important use of the FPREM instruction is to reduce the arguments of periodic functions. When reduction is complete, the instruction stores the three least-significant bits of the quotient in the C3, C1, and C0 flags of the FPU status word. This information is important in argument reduction for the tangent function (using a modulus of /4), because it locates the original angle in the correct one of eight sectors of the unit circle. This instruction's operation is the same in non-64-bit modes and 64-bit mode. Operation D exponent(ST(0)) exponent(ST(1)); IF D < 64 THEN Q Integer(TruncateTowardZero(ST(0) / ST(1))); ST(0) ST(0) (ST(1) Q); C2 0; C0, C3, C1 LeastSignificantBits(Q); (* Q2, Q1, Q0 *) ELSE C2 1; N An implementation-dependent number between 32 and 63; QQ Integer(TruncateTowardZero((ST(0) / ST(1)) / 2(D - N))); ST(0) ST(0) (ST(1) QQ 2(D - N)); FI; 3-358 Vol. 2 INSTRUCTION SET REFERENCE, A-M FPU Flags Affected C0 C1 C2 C3 Set to bit 2 (Q2) of the quotient. Set to 0 if stack underflow occurred; otherwise, set to least significant bit of quotient (Q0). Set to 0 if reduction complete; set to 1 if incomplete. Set to bit 1 (Q1) of the quotient. Floating-Point Exceptions #IS #IA #D #U Stack underflow occurred. Source operand is an SNaN value, modulus is 0, dividend is , or unsupported format. Source operand is a denormal value. Result is too small for destination format. Protected Mode Exceptions #NM MF CR0.EM[bit 2] or CR0.TS[bit 3] = 1. If there is a pending x87 FPU exception.

Vol. 2 3-359 INSTRUCTION SET REFERENCE, A-M FPREM1--Partial Remainder Opcode D9 F5 Instructio n FPREM1 64-Bit Mode Valid Compat/ Leg Mode Valid Description Replace ST(0) with the IEEE remainder obtained from dividing ST(0) by ST(1). Description Computes the IEEE remainder obtained from dividing the value in the ST(0) register (the dividend) by the value in the ST(1) register (the divisor or modulus), and stores the result in ST(0). The remainder represents the following value: Remainder ST(0) - (Q ST(1)) Here, Q is an integer value that is obtained by rounding the floating-point number quotient of [ST(0) / ST(1)] toward the nearest integer value. The magnitude of the remainder is less than or equal to half the magnitude of the modulus, unless a partial remainder was computed (as described below). This instruction produces an exact result; the precision (inexact) exception does not occur and the rounding control has no effect. The following table shows the results obtained when computing the remainder of various classes of numbers, assuming that underflow does...
