`__uhsub8 `intrinsic

This intrinsic inserts a `UHSUB8 `instruction into the instruction stream generated by the compiler. It enables you to perform four unsigned 8-bit integer subtractions, halving the results.

```unsigned int __uhsub8(unsigned int `val1`, unsigned int `val2`)
```

Where:

`val1`

holds the first four 8-bit operands

`val2`

holds the second four 8-bit operands.

The `__uhsub8 `intrinsic returns:

• the halved subtraction of the first byte in the second operand from the first byte in the first operand, in the first byte of the return value

• the halved subtraction of the second byte in the second operand from the second byte in the first operand, in the second byte of the return value

• the halved subtraction of the third byte in the second operand from the third byte in the first operand, in the third byte of the return value

• the halved subtraction of the fourth byte in the second operand from the fourth byte in the first operand, in the fourth byte of the return value.

Example:

```unsigned int subtract_and_halve(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2)
{
unsigned int res;

res = __uhsub8(val1,val2); /* res[7:0] = (val1[7:0] - val2[7:0]) >> 1
res[15:8] = (val1[15:8] - val2[15:8]) >> 1
res[23:16] = (val1[23:16] - val2[23:16]) >> 1
res[31:24] = (val1[31:24] - val2[31:24]) >> 1
*/
return res;
}
```
