Can FPREM instruction set #Z exception?

Phil_Clayton

The description of FPREM in Volume 2 of the Software Developer's Manual (075US) contains 'Table 3-31. FPREM Results' that contains '**' where ST(0) is finite and ST(1) is zero, and the notes say:

** Indicates floating-point zero-divide (#Z) exception.

However, the list of exceptions under 'Floating-Point Exceptions' for this instruction does not include #Z, and it says that #IA is raised if the modulus, i.e. ST(1), is 0.  Also, Volume 1, Section 8.5.3 Divide-By-Zero Exception (#Z), does not mention FPREM.

The documentation appears inconsistent.  Can FPREM set #Z?

Hi Deivid,

 

Thanks for your response.  To answer to your questions:

 


1. Can you share the file/PDF where you read that information?


By Software Developer's Manual I meant  Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer Manuals .  Each volume I referred to is available as a whole PDF from the Intel website as follows:

 

2. What is the model name of the Intel device related to this inquiry?


The query relates to Intel 64 and IA32 processors.  There is no specific processor model related to this query.

 

3. Are you developing software or hardware? Can you share more details?


Neither.  I am performing an independent assessment of safety critical software for the purposes of certification using static analysis techniques.

 

Regards,

 

Phil
