Provided you could have a software MMX emulator like the FPEmulator, I see no problem in using MMX instructions.

The only thing is, I really can't see how MMX instructions (which presumably are variable length) can fit into a RISC instruction set, consisting of fixed-length instructions. I should probably RTFM. -- Simon Wilson, Boulder, Colorado
