nickname japheth was already used in Github ( it was most likely me signing up 10 years ago and then forgetting about this ), so I used "Baron von Riedesel", which is also a very nice name. You may shorten it to "Baron", if you like -  a reference to "Huckleberry Finn" with the "Duke" and the "King" .

In the beginning the bear did not want to enter the room, because he was embarrassed by the guests who played the balalaika and drank vodka. Then the bear cub got used to us a little and began to beg the guests for a treat him. When the bear was brought to the table to to extinguish the candles on the cake, instead of blowing out the candles, he sucked in air together with the candles and cream. It was very fun for us and the bear cub

Looks good Marinus, I confess being a maths illiterate that I don't know how reciprocals work.
fld1            ; st(1)= 1.0
fld  num     ; st(0) = num
fdivp          ; st(0) = 1.0/num

The reciprocal of a fraction 4/5 is 5/4 ( n/m <-> m/n)
The reciprocal of x^n  is x^-n 
and the x^-n is x^n.
What is the reciprocal of 1/(1/2) ? is 1/2.

A reciprocal is 1/value

This is useful if you want to divide by a fixed number, say 100.0
Then the reciprocal is 1.0/100.0 = 0.01

Instead of dividing by 100.0 you multiply with 0.01

The Workshop / Re: Multiply matrix MxM by MxM real4 any size

The results.
Never mind. I found the file and now I am all set. I tried the createfont method last year and ran into errors and never followed through to correct. I wish I would have as it would have prevented a lot of frustration trying to get the look I needed with the application. Getting old and blind.

Thanks again.

Hi all
       Here we have 1 version to multiply any matrix MxM by
       the same matrix MxM using SSE instructions and 1 that uses FPU.
       This is a particular case of MxN * NxK already posted here.
       If we need to multiply a matrix by itself this is the better
       solution than to use the general case.

      VERSION 1:
                PROCEDURE:  MultiplyMxM_MxM_v1SSE
                MACROS:     multiplyMxN_MxK_v2A.mac

                PROCEDURE:  MultiplyMxM_MxM_v1FPU


    MATRIX DEFINITION:      We must define any matrixX as this

                            ALIGN 16
                            dd ?
                            dd ?
                            dd M   ; <<--- number of columns
                            dd M   ; <<--- number of lines
                   matrixX  dd (M*M) dup (?)         

                            If we want to alloc memory, see the file

    VERIFY SSE PROCEDURE:   Use multiplyMxM_MxM_v1.exe/asm

    Please test it in your CPU (i5/i7/AMD).
    Use ExecuteTestmultiplyMxM_MxM_SSEv1.bat and
post the file ResultsmultiplyMxM_MxM_v1.txt.

Good luck

Some results: :t

Look for libusb

I once made an attempt to control a SDR dongle via usb, never finished it.
But got the USB part working.
