Could you please elaborate? Are you asking for the definition of these trinometirc funcitons? Or are you looking for some instruction like FSIN, FSINCOS and FPATAN, FPTAN?

Thanks, but i don't know. some example please? Both.

is this built-in command? instruction? (;))
i want to know how intel build these FSIN, FSINCOS, FPATAN, FPTAN from machine code, the origin..

they are normal FPU instruction. look at http://webster.cs.ucr.edu/Page_AoAWin/0_AoAHLAWin.html, chapter 11

Do you mean, how are these instructions implemented physically in the processor, or how are machine codes of these instructions?

whatever! everything about it,
but img, some of it maybe secret. opening one-secret, amplify to break whole secret (bleh)

btw, why we can't modify or see the intel p4 microcode(which is not encrypted.)?

The mircocode are (IIRC) µOps, which enables programmers to to some extent, make their own instructions (P4 be a CISC proceccor with RISC instructions). In short you can make make an CISC instruciton via the µOp RISC instrucitons. I'm don't that mucha bout it, but my guess is that some linux guru migth know it (my red hat (tries to) updates the microcode).

Well, it sounds very interesting, but I never heard about it... Their own instructions... are you sure?

Sure enougth to bet my brain? No.
(Can't find any damn info on intels site, their search engige returns pages that doesn't contain the term I'm searching for...., and google doesn't give much more...)

The most I got was: "well undocumented, obscure" and somethinga bout "CPU bug fixes".

You are still too mysterious, fasm9.

sorry my poor english,

my english is the result of following the bureaucratism.[*shudder*]
if they let me go on my way in past, or if i followed HANDS-ON activity more earlier, maybe i am the english master now. Smile

Well, like others, I'm not sure what you want, so I'm gonna give you "everything" Smile

Two sites, that have achieved doing floating point arithmetrics faster, than FPU-s & integer multiplys faster than ALU-s can.

P.S. About those μ-ops or μ-codes: You can change them?????????Neutral
I think, that without cracking open the core of your P4, you can't even imagine of such thing. You just CAN NOT change the order of wires in your processor...or can you? Confused

P.P.S. I think I know, what you mean afterall. I (& others) call it register renaming.
For example newer Pentiums would change
mov eax,0
mov i,eax
moveax,50
mov j,eax
to
mov eax[0],0
mov i,eax[0]
mov eax[1],50
mov j,eax[1]
to prevent stalls so I think, that 0 and 1 go to U & V-pipe respectively
Quoting an eBook:
Quote:

Now the instruction set does not give the programmer the ability to select one of
these specific register array elements for a given instruction, but the CPU can automatically choose a different register array
element if doing so would not change the overall computation and doing so could speed up the execution of the program.

So, too bad!Sad The general register array can only be accessed by CPU itself & no programmer can disturb, but only hope:D
