i've never actually test any intel instruction set and would
 like to know how...

 anyone here have done it before and are kind enough to guide
 me?

What do you mean by test the instruction set? Please, explain what you would like to do.

 i want to see how long it takes to execute a block of code and,
 how many cycle does one instruction take.
 (i've tried VTune, i don't like it... it's too confusing and to
 big for my task.)

Did you say that you have Abrash's Black Book of Graphics Programming? There is a chapter in there on timing code. :) Agner has some timing code on his website I think (try THIS). Personally, I've been to lazy to get that code and reconfigure it for my own use. There don't seem to be a package for assembly language programmers to just wrap their code in and go. It's far down on my to do list. :P This message was edited by bitRAKE, on 6/1/2001 5:01:40 PM

 hmmmm... anyway, i'll try the pztimer. (i don't know if it's a
 good idea.. cause i have to restart everytime i finish a one -
 test. and it work in real mode).

 Hutch advise me to test it using the macro that comes with  --
 masm32 (but don't know how) cause it work in pmode and i don't
 have to worry about other stuff other than the speed of the c-
 ode..

I would like to see a 'testing code speed tutorial' :rolleyes: If you discover anything, make me know. :) Thank you.
