CLASTB (vectors)

Conditionally extract last element to vector register.

From the second source vector register extract the last active element, and then replicate that element to destructively fill the destination and first source vector.

If there are no active elements then leave the destination and source vector unmodified.



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

if !HaveSVE() then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << UInt(size);
integer g = UInt(Pg);
integer dn = UInt(Zdn);
integer m = UInt(Zm);
boolean isBefore = TRUE;

Assembler Symbols


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.


integer elements = VL DIV esize;
bits(PL) mask = P[g];
bits(VL) operand1 = Z[dn];
bits(VL) operand2 = Z[m];
bits(VL) result;
integer last = LastActiveElement(mask, esize);

if last < 0 then
    result = operand1;
    if !isBefore then
        last = last + 1;
        if last >= elements then last = 0;
    for e = 0 to elements-1
        Elem[result, e, esize] = Elem[operand2, last, esize];

Z[dn] = result;

Operational information

This instruction might be immediately preceded in program order by a MOVPRFX instruction that conforms to all of the following requirements, otherwise the behavior of either or both instructions is unpredictable:

  • The MOVPRFX instruction must specify the same destination register as this instruction.
  • The destination register must not refer to architectural register state referenced by any other source operand register of this instruction.
The MOVPRFX instructions that can be used with this instruction are as follows:
  • An unpredicated MOVPRFX instruction.
  • A predicated MOVPRFX instruction using the same governing predicate register and source element size as this instruction.
