The following additional built-in functions are also available for the
PowerPC family of processors, starting with ISA 3.0
(`-mcpu=power9`) or later.

Only instructions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.

unsigned int scalar_extract_exp (double source); unsigned long long int scalar_extract_exp (__ieee128 source); unsigned long long int scalar_extract_sig (double source); unsigned __int128 scalar_extract_sig (__ieee128 source); double scalar_insert_exp (unsigned long long int significand, unsigned long long int exponent); double scalar_insert_exp (double significand, unsigned long long int exponent); ieee_128 scalar_insert_exp (unsigned __int128 significand, unsigned long long int exponent); ieee_128 scalar_insert_exp (ieee_128 significand, unsigned long long int exponent); int scalar_cmp_exp_gt (double arg1, double arg2); int scalar_cmp_exp_lt (double arg1, double arg2); int scalar_cmp_exp_eq (double arg1, double arg2); int scalar_cmp_exp_unordered (double arg1, double arg2); bool scalar_test_data_class (float source, const int condition); bool scalar_test_data_class (double source, const int condition); bool scalar_test_data_class (__ieee128 source, const int condition); bool scalar_test_neg (float source); bool scalar_test_neg (double source); bool scalar_test_neg (__ieee128 source);

The `scalar_extract_exp`

and `scalar_extract_sig`

functions require a 64-bit environment supporting ISA 3.0 or later.
The `scalar_extract_exp`

and `scalar_extract_sig`

built-in
functions return the significand and the biased exponent value
respectively of their `source`

arguments.
When supplied with a 64-bit `source`

argument, the
result returned by `scalar_extract_sig`

has
the `0x0010000000000000`

bit set if the
function’s `source`

argument is in normalized form.
Otherwise, this bit is set to 0.
When supplied with a 128-bit `source`

argument, the
`0x00010000000000000000000000000000`

bit of the result is
treated similarly.
Note that the sign of the significand is not represented in the result
returned from the `scalar_extract_sig`

function. Use the
`scalar_test_neg`

function to test the sign of its `double`

argument.

The `scalar_insert_exp`

functions require a 64-bit environment supporting ISA 3.0 or later.
When supplied with a 64-bit first argument, the
`scalar_insert_exp`

built-in function returns a double-precision
floating point value that is constructed by assembling the values of its
`significand`

and `exponent`

arguments. The sign of the
result is copied from the most significant bit of the
`significand`

argument. The significand and exponent components
of the result are composed of the least significant 11 bits of the
`exponent`

argument and the least significant 52 bits of the
`significand`

argument respectively.

When supplied with a 128-bit first argument, the
`scalar_insert_exp`

built-in function returns a quad-precision
ieee floating point value. The sign bit of the result is copied from
the most significant bit of the `significand`

argument.
The significand and exponent components of the result are composed of
the least significant 15 bits of the `exponent`

argument and the
least significant 112 bits of the `significand`

argument respectively.

The `scalar_cmp_exp_gt`

, `scalar_cmp_exp_lt`

,
`scalar_cmp_exp_eq`

, and `scalar_cmp_exp_unordered`

built-in
functions return a non-zero value if `arg1`

is greater than, less
than, equal to, or not comparable to `arg2`

respectively. The
arguments are not comparable if one or the other equals NaN (not a
number).

The `scalar_test_data_class`

built-in function returns 1
if any of the condition tests enabled by the value of the
`condition`

variable are true, and 0 otherwise. The
`condition`

argument must be a compile-time constant integer with
value not exceeding 127. The
`condition`

argument is encoded as a bitmask with each bit
enabling the testing of a different condition, as characterized by the
following:

0x40 Test for NaN 0x20 Test for +Infinity 0x10 Test for -Infinity 0x08 Test for +Zero 0x04 Test for -Zero 0x02 Test for +Denormal 0x01 Test for -Denormal

The `scalar_test_neg`

built-in function returns 1 if its
`source`

argument holds a negative value, 0 otherwise.

The following built-in functions are also available for the PowerPC family
of processors, starting with ISA 3.0 or later
(`-mcpu=power9`). These string functions are described
separately in order to group the descriptions closer to the function
prototypes.

Only functions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.

int vec_all_nez (vector signed char, vector signed char); int vec_all_nez (vector unsigned char, vector unsigned char); int vec_all_nez (vector signed short, vector signed short); int vec_all_nez (vector unsigned short, vector unsigned short); int vec_all_nez (vector signed int, vector signed int); int vec_all_nez (vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int); int vec_any_eqz (vector signed char, vector signed char); int vec_any_eqz (vector unsigned char, vector unsigned char); int vec_any_eqz (vector signed short, vector signed short); int vec_any_eqz (vector unsigned short, vector unsigned short); int vec_any_eqz (vector signed int, vector signed int); int vec_any_eqz (vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int); signed char vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector signed char data); unsigned char vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned char data); signed short vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector signed short data); unsigned short vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned short data); signed int vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector signed int data); unsigned int vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned int data); float vec_xlx (unsigned int index, vector float data); signed char vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector signed char data); unsigned char vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned char data); signed short vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector signed short data); unsigned short vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned short data); signed int vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector signed int data); unsigned int vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector unsigned int data); float vec_xrx (unsigned int index, vector float data);

The `vec_all_nez`

, `vec_any_eqz`

, and `vec_cmpnez`

perform pairwise comparisons between the elements at the same
positions within their two vector arguments.
The `vec_all_nez`

function returns a
non-zero value if and only if all pairwise comparisons are not
equal and no element of either vector argument contains a zero.
The `vec_any_eqz`

function returns a
non-zero value if and only if at least one pairwise comparison is equal
or if at least one element of either vector argument contains a zero.
The `vec_cmpnez`

function returns a vector of the same type as
its two arguments, within which each element consists of all ones to
denote that either the corresponding elements of the incoming arguments are
not equal or that at least one of the corresponding elements contains
zero. Otherwise, the element of the returned vector contains all zeros.

The `vec_xlx`

and `vec_xrx`

functions extract the single
element selected by the `index`

argument from the vector
represented by the `data`

argument. The `index`

argument
always specifies a byte offset, regardless of the size of the vector
element. With `vec_xlx`

, `index`

is the offset of the first
byte of the element to be extracted. With `vec_xrx`

, `index`

represents the last byte of the element to be extracted, measured
from the right end of the vector. In other words, the last byte of
the element to be extracted is found at position `(15 - index)`

.
There is no requirement that `index`

be a multiple of the vector
element size. However, if the size of the vector element added to
`index`

is greater than 15, the content of the returned value is
undefined.

The following functions are also available if the ISA 3.0 instruction
set additions (`-mcpu=power9`) are available.

Only functions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.

vector long long vec_vctz (vector long long); vector unsigned long long vec_vctz (vector unsigned long long); vector int vec_vctz (vector int); vector unsigned int vec_vctz (vector int); vector short vec_vctz (vector short); vector unsigned short vec_vctz (vector unsigned short); vector signed char vec_vctz (vector signed char); vector unsigned char vec_vctz (vector unsigned char); vector signed char vec_vctzb (vector signed char); vector unsigned char vec_vctzb (vector unsigned char); vector long long vec_vctzd (vector long long); vector unsigned long long vec_vctzd (vector unsigned long long); vector short vec_vctzh (vector short); vector unsigned short vec_vctzh (vector unsigned short); vector int vec_vctzw (vector int); vector unsigned int vec_vctzw (vector int); vector int vec_vprtyb (vector int); vector unsigned int vec_vprtyb (vector unsigned int); vector long long vec_vprtyb (vector long long); vector unsigned long long vec_vprtyb (vector unsigned long long); vector int vec_vprtybw (vector int); vector unsigned int vec_vprtybw (vector unsigned int); vector long long vec_vprtybd (vector long long); vector unsigned long long vec_vprtybd (vector unsigned long long);

On 64-bit targets, if the ISA 3.0 additions (`-mcpu=power9`)
are available:

vector long vec_vprtyb (vector long); vector unsigned long vec_vprtyb (vector unsigned long); vector __int128 vec_vprtyb (vector __int128); vector __uint128 vec_vprtyb (vector __uint128); vector long vec_vprtybd (vector long); vector unsigned long vec_vprtybd (vector unsigned long); vector __int128 vec_vprtybq (vector __int128); vector __uint128 vec_vprtybd (vector __uint128);

The following built-in functions are available for the PowerPC family
of processors, starting with ISA 3.0 or later (`-mcpu=power9`).

Only functions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.

__vector unsigned char vec_absdb (__vector unsigned char arg1, __vector unsigned char arg2); __vector unsigned short vec_absdh (__vector unsigned short arg1, __vector unsigned short arg2); __vector unsigned int vec_absdw (__vector unsigned int arg1, __vector unsigned int arg2);

The `vec_absd`

, `vec_absdb`

, `vec_absdh`

, and
`vec_absdw`

built-in functions each computes the absolute
differences of the pairs of vector elements supplied in its two vector
arguments, placing the absolute differences into the corresponding
elements of the vector result.

The following built-in functions are available for the PowerPC family
of processors, starting with ISA 3.0 or later (`-mcpu=power9`):

vector unsigned int vec_vrlnm (vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int); vector unsigned long long vec_vrlnm (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long);

The result of `vec_vrlnm`

is obtained by rotating each element
of the first argument vector left and ANDing it with a mask. The
second argument vector contains the mask beginning in bits 11:15,
the mask end in bits 19:23, and the shift count in bits 27:31,
of each element.

If the cryptographic instructions are enabled (`-mcrypto` or
`-mcpu=power8`), the following builtins are enabled.

Only functions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.

vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vsbox (vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vcipher (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vcipherlast (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vncipher (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vncipherlast (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned char __builtin_crypto_vpermxor (vector unsigned char, vector unsigned char, vector unsigned char); vector unsigned short __builtin_crypto_vpermxor (vector unsigned short, vector unsigned short, vector unsigned short); vector unsigned int __builtin_crypto_vpermxor (vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vpermxor (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned char __builtin_crypto_vpmsumb (vector unsigned char, vector unsigned char); vector unsigned short __builtin_crypto_vpmsumh (vector unsigned short, vector unsigned short); vector unsigned int __builtin_crypto_vpmsumw (vector unsigned int, vector unsigned int); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vpmsumd (vector unsigned long long, vector unsigned long long); vector unsigned long long __builtin_crypto_vshasigmad (vector unsigned long long, int, int); vector unsigned int __builtin_crypto_vshasigmaw (vector unsigned int, int, int);

The second argument to `__builtin_crypto_vshasigmad` and
`__builtin_crypto_vshasigmaw` must be a constant
integer that is 0 or 1. The third argument to these built-in functions
must be a constant integer in the range of 0 to 15.

The following sign extension builtins are provided:

vector signed int vec_signexti (vector signed char a); vector signed long long vec_signextll (vector signed char a); vector signed int vec_signexti (vector signed short a); vector signed long long vec_signextll (vector signed short a); vector signed long long vec_signextll (vector signed int a); vector signed long long vec_signextq (vector signed long long a);

Each element of the result is produced by sign-extending the element of the input vector that would fall in the least significant portion of the result element. For example, a sign-extension of a vector signed char to a vector signed long long will sign extend the rightmost byte of each doubleword.
