how can i count the instructions in a blackfin 537?
i have read that cycle register in the compiled simulator option shows the number of instructions, but i dont think its correct.
Hi,To measure the cycles accurately, you can make use of the Cycle count macros provided by the libraries. e.g.#include <cycle_count.h>
cycle_t start_count;cycle_t final_count;START_CYCLE_COUNT(start_count); *pTIMER_ENABLE = TIMEN7; // start single-shot timerSTOP_CYCLE_COUNT(final_count,start_count);PRINT_CYCLES("Number of cycles:",final_count);For more information, take a look at EE-332 "Cycle Counting a Profiling", available from the link below.www.analog.com/.../EE-332 .pdfRegards,Lalitha.S
