What is the difference between (in Flowcode 6 map file):

__mul_8_8__00009 __mul_8_8__8(unsigned char,unsigned char)


__mul_8u_8_0000A __mul_8u_8u(unsigned char,unsigned char)

Kind reagrds

From : ... s/boostc.h

Code: Select all

extern unsigned char    __mul_8_8__8( unsigned char a, unsigned char b );
extern unsigned short   __mul_8u_8u( unsigned char a, unsigned char b );

The first one returns a byte (max 255), the second one returns a word (2 bytes, max 65535).
ASM code behind the function is different too I presume.
