Splice two vectors under predicate control.

Copy the first active to last active elements (inclusive) from the first source vector to the lowest-numbered elements of the result. Then set any remaining elements of the result to a copy of the lowest-numbered elements from the second source vector. The result is placed destructively in the first source vector.



SPLICE <Zdn>.<T>, <Pg>, <Zdn>.<T>, <Zm>.<T>

if !HaveSVE() then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << UInt(size);
integer g = UInt(Pg);
integer dst = UInt(Zdn);
integer s1 = dst;
integer s2 = UInt(Zm);

Is the name of the first source and destination scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zdn" field.

<T> Is the size specifier, encoded in size:
size <T>
00 B
01 H
10 S
11 D

Is the name of the governing scalable predicate register P0-P7, encoded in the "Pg" field.


Is the name of the second source scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zm" field.
