6.59.3 Altera Nios II Built-in Functions

These built-in functions are available for the Altera Nios II family of processors.

The following built-in functions are always available. They all generate the machine instruction that is part of the name.

     int __builtin_ldbio (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_ldbuio (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_ldhio (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_ldhuio (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_ldwio (volatile const void *)
     void __builtin_stbio (volatile void *, int)
     void __builtin_sthio (volatile void *, int)
     void __builtin_stwio (volatile void *, int)
     void __builtin_sync (void)
     int __builtin_rdctl (int)
     int __builtin_rdprs (int, int)
     void __builtin_wrctl (int, int)
     void __builtin_flushd (volatile void *)
     void __builtin_flushda (volatile void *)
     int __builtin_wrpie (int);
     void __builtin_eni (int);
     int __builtin_ldex (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_stex (volatile void *, int)
     int __builtin_ldsex (volatile const void *)
     int __builtin_stsex (volatile void *, int)

The following built-in functions are always available. They all generate a Nios II Custom Instruction. The name of the function represents the types that the function takes and returns. The letter before the n is the return type or void if absent. The n represents the first parameter to all the custom instructions, the custom instruction number. The two letters after the n represent the up to two parameters to the function.

The letters represent the following data types:

<no letter>
void for return type and no parameter for parameter types.
i
int for return type and parameter type
f
float for return type and parameter type
p
void * for return type and parameter type

And the function names are:
