I have to extend the tables.inc structure, the part instructions for a special project with different but mostly similar targets and other coding of instructions. I don't want to do separate versions because they are really similar but not 100% identical.

So I wonder about this calculation:

Code:
instructions:
 dw instructions_2-instructions,(instructions_3-instructions_2)/(2+3)
 dw instructions_3-instructions,(instructions_4-instructions_3)/(3+3)
 dw instructions_4-instructions,(instructions_5-instructions_4)/(4+3)
 dw instructions_5-instructions,(instructions_6-instructions_5)/(5+3)
 dw instructions_6-instructions,(instructions_7-instructions_6)/(6+3)
 dw instructions_7-instructions,(instructions_8-instructions_7)/(7+3)
 dw instructions_8-instructions,(instructions_9-instructions_8)/(8+3)
 dw instructions_9-instructions,(instructions_10-instructions_9)/(9+3)
 dw instructions_10-instructions,(instructions_11-instructions_10)/(10+3)
 dw instructions_11-instructions,(instructions_12-instructions_11)/(11+3)
 dw instructions_12-instructions,(instructions_13-instructions_12)/(12+3)
 dw instructions_13-instructions,(instructions_14-instructions_13)/(13+3)
 dw instructions_14-instructions,(instructions_15-instructions_14)/(14+3)
 dw instructions_15-instructions,(instructions_16-instructions_15)/(15+3)
 dw instructions_16-instructions,(instructions_end-instructions_16)/(16+3)
    

First word is the offset of the instruction table "part".
Second word is the size of every instruction "part" but what is that division for ?

Looks a bit crazy, try to understand the purpose. Maybe someone can answer (other than look in source Rolling Eyes ).

Thanks !

It computes the total number of instructions of each length.

Thanks, now it's got clear. First I thought about different length of instruction names but it is per section. +3 ist for the identification "byte" plus offset of the function to process the instruction.

Maybe yesterday was to late when I took a view in the source. Razz
