Vector-scalar instructions

Richard Newell

Sorry for what may be a question with an answer that may be obvious to those that have been at all the meetings:


Have the vector-scalar instructions (.vs) been eliminated from the vector extensions?  By this, I mean where the scalar comes from vector element zero.  I only see things like .vx for the arithmetic instructions, where the scalar comes from any of the general-purpose “x” (or alternatively, the floating-point) registers in my reading of the latest version of the specification.
