__stosb

Microsoft Specific

Generates a store string instruction (rep stosb).

Syntax

void __stosb(
   unsigned char* Dest,
   unsigned char Data,
   size_t Count
);

Parameters

Dest
[out] The destination of the operation.

Data
[in] The data to store.

Count
[in] The length of the block of bytes to write.

Requirements

Intrinsic Architecture
__stosb x86, x64

Header file <intrin.h>

Remarks

The result is that the character Data is written into a block of Count bytes in the Dest string.

This routine is only available as an intrinsic.

Example

// stosb.c
// processor: x86, x64
#include <stdio.h>
#include <intrin.h>

#pragma intrinsic(__stosb)

int main()
{
    unsigned char c = 0x40; /* '@' character */
    unsigned char s[] = "*********************************";

    printf_s("%s\n", s);
    __stosb((unsigned char*)s+1, c, 6);
    printf_s("%s\n", s);

}
