Using inline assembly, users can accelerate the execution of applications by handcrafting the assembler codes for the most perf
As previously posted, I started a series to discuss inline assembly for Linux on z Systems. There are multiple articles in the series. In continuation to the first article titled A primer to assembler instructions to be embedded in C/C++ applications on z Systems on developerWorks, I have published the next two articles about the basics and the features of inline assembly on Linux for z Systems using general instructions. There are also Japanese and Chinese versions of the articles available on developerWorks website.
This series will continue with articles to discuss about the performance gain of using inline assembly, the feature with Floating Point Registers, and so on. I will create a new entry when a future article is published.
