BEXT

Gather lower bits from positions selected by bitmask.

This instruction gathers bits in each element of the first source vector from the bit positions indicated by non-zero bits in the corresponding mask element of the second source vector to the lowest-numbered contiguous bits of the corresponding destination element, preserving their order, and sets the remaining higher-numbered bits to zero. This instruction is unpredicated.

ID_AA64ZFR0_EL1.BitPerm indicates whether this instruction is implemented.

Assembler Symbols

<Zd>

Is the name of the destination scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zd" field.

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

Is the name of the first source scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zn" field.

<Zm>

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

Operation

CheckSVEEnabled();
integer elements = VL DIV esize;
bits(VL) data = Z[n];
bits(VL) mask = Z[m];
bits(VL) result;

for e = 0 to elements - 1
    Elem[result, e, esize] = BitExtract(Elem[data, e, esize], Elem[mask, e, esize]);

Z[d] = result;

Operational information

If PSTATE.DIT is 1:

  • The execution time of this instruction is independent of:
    • The values of the data supplied in any of its registers.
    • The values of the NZCV flags.
  • The response of this instruction to asynchronous exceptions does not vary based on:
    • The values of the data supplied in any of its registers.
    • The values of the NZCV flags.
