Previous: Modifiers, Up: Constraints

Whenever possible, you should use the general-purpose constraint letters
in `asm`

arguments, since they will convey meaning more readily to
people reading your code. Failing that, use the constraint letters
that usually have very similar meanings across architectures. The most
commonly used constraints are ``m`' and ``r`' (for memory and
general-purpose registers respectively; see Simple Constraints), and
``I`', usually the letter indicating the most common
immediate-constant format.

Each architecture defines additional constraints. These constraints
are used by the compiler itself for instruction generation, as well as
for `asm`

statements; therefore, some of the constraints are not
particularly useful for `asm`

. Here is a summary of some of the
machine-dependent constraints available on some particular machines;
it includes both constraints that are useful for `asm`

and
constraints that aren't. The compiler source file mentioned in the
table heading for each architecture is the definitive reference for
the meanings of that architecture's constraints.

- Memory operand.
Normally,
`m`

does not allow addresses that update the base register. If ``<`' or ``>`' constraint is also used, they are allowed and therefore on PowerPC targets in that case it is only safe to use ``m<>`' in an`asm`

statement if that`asm`

statement accesses the operand exactly once. The`asm`

statement must also use ``%U`' as a placeholder for the “update” flag in the corresponding load or store instruction. For example:`<opno>`asm ("st%U0 %1,%0" : "=m<>" (mem) : "r" (val));

is correct but:

asm ("st %1,%0" : "=m<>" (mem) : "r" (val));

is not.

`es`

- A “stable” memory operand; that is, one which does not include any
automodification of the base register. This used to be useful when
`
`m`' allowed automodification of the base register, but as those are now only allowed when ``<`' or ``>`' is used, ``es`' is basically the same as ``m`' without ``<`' and ``>`'. `Q`

- Memory operand that is an offset from a register (it is usually better
to use `
`m`' or ``es`' in`asm`

statements) `Z`

- Memory operand that is an indexed or indirect from a register (it is
usually better to use `
`m`' or ``es`' in`asm`

statements) `R`

- AIX TOC entry
`a`

- Address operand that is an indexed or indirect from a register (`
`p`' is preferable for`asm`

statements) `S`

- Constant suitable as a 64-bit mask operand
`T`

- Constant suitable as a 32-bit mask operand

`t`

- AND masks that can be performed by two rldic{l, r} instructions
`W`

,`sp`

). `q`

register pair. Single word values will be allocated either in`ax`

or`dx`

. For example on i386 the following implements`rdtsc`

:unsigned long long rdtsc (void) { unsigned long long tick; __asm__ __volatile__("rdtsc":"=A"(tick)); return tick; }

This is not correct on x86_64 as it would allocate tick in either

`ax`

or`dx`

. You have to use the following variant instead:unsigned long long rdtsc (void) { unsigned int tickl, tickh; __asm__ __volatile__("rdtsc":"=a"(tickl),"=d"(tickh)); return ((unsigned long long)tickh << 32)|tickl; }
