Rotates the contents of a general-purpose register to the left by a specified number of bits, places the rotated word in the MQ Register, and places the logical AND of the rotated word and a generated mask in a general-purpose register.
Note: The srq instruction is supported only in the POWER architecture.
The srq instruction rotates the contents of the source general-purpose register (GPR) RS to the left by 32 minus N bits, where N is the shift amount specified in bits 27-31 of GPR RB, and stores the rotated word in the MQ Register. The mask depends on bit 26 of GPR RB.
Consider the following when using the srq instruction:
This instruction then stores the logical AND of the rotated word and the generated mask in GPR RA.
The srq instruction has two syntax forms. Each syntax form has a different effect on Condition Register Field 0.
|Syntax Form||Overflow Exception (OE)||Fixed-Point Exception Register||Record Bit (Rc)||Condition Register Field 0|
The two syntax forms of the srq instruction never affect the Fixed-Point Exception Register. If the syntax form sets the Record (Rc) bit to 1, the instruction affects the Less Than (LT) zero, Greater Than (GT) zero, Equal To (EQ) zero, and Summary Overflow (SO) bits in Condition Register Field 0.
|RA||Specifies target general-purpose register where result of operation is stored.|
|RS||Specifies source general-purpose register for operation.|
|RB||Specifies source general-purpose register for operation.|
