In your diagram above, draw two vertical pencil-lines, 64 bits apart, with at least 64 bits to the left of the leftmost line. (In other words, this is the second quadword in the value being sought.)

You total, utter, complete and unbashed, ^%$$%$^ TWONK!

There is no "second quadword in the value being sought", there are SIXTY FOUR second quadwords being sought; because the second quadword of the needle, could appear at any bit offset!

Thus, there is a 63 out of 64 chance, that no single quadword that appears in the needle, will appear anywhere -- 64-bit aligned -- in the haystack!

Even though the haystack might consist of millions of exact repetitions of the needle. They only need to be offset from the alignment by 1 bit (or 2 bits, or 3 bits or ... or 62-bits) and your REPNE SCASx instruction will simply never *&^&&%$ see them!

Please stop talking bollocks, and STFU.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
