explicitly set zero flag
Hello MikeAre you aware that there is a current implementation of the non-jit version for IBM Z series. I obviously support your efforts to do a jit version. I am the maintainer of that stuff and would like to work with you so I couldA. Share with you my experienceB. Coordinate between the two versions
I see that you are an IBM employee, so your designs will take precedence over mine, but with coordination we could keep them close.
I am glad that IBM decided to take over.
Please contact me at zatlas1@???
Bug ID: 2365
Summary: check_wordboundary does not explicitly set zero flag
The OP_WORD_BOUNDARY/OP_NOT_WORD_BOUNDARY implementation calls the fast
function check_wordboundary expecting it to set the zero flag (SLJIT_SET_Z).
The function never explicitly sets the flag though. I presume this works on
x86_64 because the xor instruction sets the zero flag regardless of whether it
is requested or not.
I've attached a patch that fixes the issue for me on the architecture I am
trying to port the PCRE2 JIT to (IBM Z).
