Xbyak 4.71 ; JIT assembler for x86(IA32), x64(AMD64, x86-64) by C++


This is a header file which enables dynamically to assemble x86(IA32), x64(AMD64, x86-64) mnemonic.


header file only you can use Xbyak's functions at once if xbyak.h is included.

Supported Instructions Sets


Supported OS

  • Windows Xp, Vista, Windows 7(32bit, 64bit)
  • Linux(32bit, 64bit)
  • Intel Mac ready

Supported Compilers

  • Visual Studio C++ VC2008 Pro, VC2010, VC2012
  • gcc 4.7
  • clang 3.3
  • cygwin gcc 4.5.3
  • icc 7.2

Note: Xbyak uses and(), or(), xor(), not() functions, so “-fno-operator-names” option is required on gcc. Or define XBYAK_NO_OP_NAMES and use and_(), or_(), xor_(), not_() instead of them. and_(), or_(), xor_(), not_() are available if XBYAK_NO_OP_NAMES is not defined.


The following files are necessary. Please add the path to your compile directories.

  • xbyak.h
  • xbyak_bin2hex.h
  • xbyak_mnemonic.h


make install

These files are copied into /usr/local/include/xbyak

Break backward compatibility

  • change the type of Xbyak::Error from enum to a class. ** get the enum value by cast to int.
  • An (old) Reg32e class will split (new) Reg32e class and (new) RegExp. (new) Reg32e class is Reg32 or Reg64. (new) RegExp class is to deal with ‘Reg32e + Reg32e * scale + disp’. Please rename Reg32e as RegExp if you use (old) Reg32e as RegExp.

New Feature

  • Use MmapAllocator if XBYAK_USE_MMAP_ALLOCATOR. Default allocator calls posix_memalign on Linux, then mprotect recudes map count. The max value is written in /proc/sys/vm/max_map_count. The max number of instances of Xbyak::CodeGenerator is limited to the value. See test/mprotect_test.cpp. Use MmapAllocator if you want to avoid the restriction(This behavior may be default in the feature).

  • AutoGrow mode is a mode that Xbyak grows memory automatically if necessary. Call ready() before calling getCode() to calc address of jmp.

    struct Code : Xbyak::CodeGenerator {
        : Xbyak::CodeGenerator(<default memory size>, Xbyak::AutoGrow)
    Code c;
    c.ready(); // Don't forget to call this function

Don't use the address returned by getCurr() before calling ready(). It may be invalid address. RESTRICTION : rip addressing is not supported in AutoGrow


Make Xbyak::CodeGenerator and make the class method and get the function pointer by calling cgetCode() and casting the return value.

NASM              Xbyak
mov eax, ebx  --> mov(eax, ebx);
inc ecx           inc(ecx);
ret           --> ret();


(ptr|dword|word|byte) [base + index * (1|2|4|8) + displacement]
                      [rip + 32bit disp] ; x64 only

NASM                   Xbyak
mov eax, [ebx+ecx] --> mov (eax, ptr[ebx+ecx]);
test byte [esp], 4 --> test (byte [esp], 4);

selector is not supported.

you can use ptr for almost memory access unless you specify the size of memory.

dword, word and byte are member variables, then don't use dword as unsigned int, for example.


You can omit a destination for almost 3-op mnemonics.

vaddps(xmm1, xmm2, xmm3); // xmm1 <- xmm2 + xmm3
vaddps(xmm2, xmm3); // xmm2 <- xmm2 + xmm3
vaddps(xmm2, xmm3, ptr [rax]); // use ptr to access memory
vgatherdpd(xmm1, ptr [ebp+123+xmm2*4], xmm3);


  jmp ("L1");

  jmp ("L2");
  a few mnemonics(8-bit displacement jmp)

  jmp ("L3", T_NEAR);
  a lot of mnemonics(32-bit displacement jmp)

Call hasUndefinedLabel() to verify your code has no undefined label. you can use a label for immediate value of mov like as mov (eax, “L2”);

1. support @@, @f, @b like MASM

L("@@"); // <A>
  jmp("@b"); // jmp to <A>
  jmp("@f"); // jmp to <B>
L("@@"); // <B>
  jmp("@b"); // jmp to <B>
  mov(eax, "@b");
  jmp(eax); // jmp to <B>

2. localization of label by calling inLocalLabel(), outLocallabel().

labels begining of period between inLocalLabel() and outLocalLabel() are dealed with local label. inLocalLabel() and outLocalLabel() can be nested.

void func1()
  L(".lp"); // <A> ; local label
    jmp(".lp"); // jmpt to <A>
  L("aaa"); // global label

void func2()
  L(".lp"); // <B> ; local label
    jmp(".lp"); // jmp to <B>

New Label class

L() and jxx() functions support a new Label class.

  Label label1, label2;

Moreover, assignL(dstLabel, srcLabel) method binds dstLabel with srcLabel.

  Label label1, label2;
  assignL(label2, label1); // label2 <= label1

The above jmp opecode jumps label1.

  • Restriction:
  • srcLabel must be used in L().
  • dstLabel must not be used in L().

Code size

The default max code size is 4096 bytes. Please set it in constructor of CodeGenerator() if you want to use large size.

class Quantize : public Xbyak::CodeGenerator {
    : CodeGenerator(8192)

use user allocated memory

You can make jit code on prepaired memory.

class Sample : public Xbyak::CodeGenerator {
    Sample(void *userPtr, size_t size)
        : Xbyak::CodeGenerator(size, userPtr)

const size_t codeSize = 1024;
uint8 buf[codeSize + 16];

// get 16-byte aligned address
uint8 *p = Xbyak::CodeArray::getAlignedAddress(buf);

// append executable attribute to the memory
Xbyak::CodeArray::protect(p, codeSize, true);

// construct your jit code on the memory
Sample s(p, codeSize);
