It's a lot more stable. What is stack?

stack equ dword ptr [esp]
stack[4] = first argument

I can read my own code! (most of the time )

Hi Hector,

Here is a console program using mostly CyCt* macros plus one of the MichaelW counters:

Code: [Select]
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz
23       Cycles for some short instructions

19       Cycles for fldpi+1*fdiv+fstp st
19       Cycles for fldpi+1*fdiv+fstp st
186     kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with Instr_
2483    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with InString
2551    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with crt strstr
710     kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with Boyer-Moore
2508    kCycles for InString using MichaelW's macro


18       Cycles for fldpi+1*fdiv+fstp st

186     kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with Instr_
2480    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with InString
2548    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with crt strstr
710     kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with Boyer-Moore

2480    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with InString
2545    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with crt strstr
710     kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with Boyer-Moore
2506    kCycles for InString using MichaelW's macro


19       Cycles for fldpi+1*fdiv+fstp st

2487    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with InString
2551    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with crt strstr

2549    kCycles for finding 'Duplicate' with crt strstr

MichaelW, Instring: 2508 2534 2506 2521 2510 2534-2506=28
CyCt*, Instring: 2483 2480 2480 2487 2483 2487-2480=7

Run the attachment, and you will see that the new macros have another advantage :cool:

YMMV :cool:

But in general, I get fairly consistent output, and at much, much greater speed. Which is an argument when you are trying to optimise an algo and it takes you many small changes.

Here is the civilised version, with an Inkey at the end. The other one runs fine from a DOS prompt, of course  :biggrin:

This onje at least stops on the inkey but to run it, it must be copied to my dev drive. Would be a lot easier to run if I could just copy windows.inc to where it gets unzipped. I test on a ramdrive, not my dev drive.

Now I understand the problem :biggrin:

I know one guy who is very proud about all paths in include files being hardcoded to the root as in \thatfolder\whatever :mrgreen:

Code: [Select]
Let esi=FileRead$("\Masm32\include\Windows.inc")
Attached a version with embedded Windows.inc, and some more timings. Don't complain that it's a fat attachment :cool:

Code: [Select]
  ; Let esi=FileRead$("\Masm32\include\Windows.inc")
  Let esi=FileRead$(99)   ; resource ID 99

Thanks, Steve, now it looks reasonably stable :thumbsup:

A typical usage example:

Code: [Select]
CyCtStart
fldpi
fmul FP4(100.0)
fistp testDD
CyCtEnd PI*100
CyCtStart
fldpi
fmul FP4(100.0)
fdiv FP4(10.0)
fistp testDD
CyCtEnd PI*100/10
CyCtStart
push eax
pop eax
CyCtEnd push & pop eax
