Description Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2023-11-27 08:43:15 GMT
just as with sv.cmpi/ff and in the maxloc example there
is a need to loop on scalar in sv.bc*

in this case however it should have been looping anyway
because BI is a *source* not a destination.

this is the mistake:


* DONE: fixed mistake

Comment 1 Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2023-11-27 09:46:05 GMT
TODO: note in the spec that BI is a source. do a quick Programmer Note
to say "if single needed use 1<<r3 predicate mask or other single-bit mask"

    got sv.bc working for pospopcount
Comment 3 Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton 2023-11-27 14:19:11 GMT
added note on sv.bc use of 1<<r3 recommended for single-scalar test
