5.10.1. VABA{L} and VABD{L}

VABA (Vector Absolute Difference and Accumulate) subtracts the elements of one vector from the corresponding elements of another vector, and accumulates the absolute values of the results into the elements of the destination vector.

VABD (Vector Absolute Difference) subtracts the elements of one vector from the corresponding elements of another vector, and places the absolute values of the results into the elements of the destination vector.

Long versions of both instructions are available.

Syntax

Vop{cond}.datatype {Qd}, Qn, Qm
Vop{cond}.datatype {Dd}, Dn, Dm
VopL{cond}.datatype Qd, Dn, Dm

where:

op

must be either ABA or ABD.

cond

is an optional condition code (see Condition codes).

datatype

must be one of:

  • S8, S16, S32, U8, U16, or U32 for VABA, VABAL, or VABDL

  • S8, S16, S32, U8, U16, U32 or F32 for VABD.

Qd, Qn, Qm

are the destination vector, the first operand vector, and the second operand vector, for a quadword operation.

Dd, Dn, Dm

are the destination vector, the first operand vector, and the second operand vector, for a doubleword operation.

Qd, Dn, Dm

are the destination vector, the first operand vector, and the second operand vector, for a long operation.
