Fastest sin(x) in dos batch

#1 Post by einstein1969 » 04 Sep 2013 07:41

hi,

I need to have the sine function in batch. Should be as fast as possible. I only need a few decimal (2-3 or 4) after the decimal point as a result or integer values ​​to be divided. In input also an integer value of degrees or cents / thousandths of degrees.

You could use the mathematics of integers of dos batch to be more 'fast?

I'm sorry, I forgot to add that I would not install anything, so if possible in pure batch dos or with what is available by default.

In that link I could find only two batch but require php.

I did a test and still does not seem to be very fast.

I cycled about 1000 times and has taken too much on my pc ..

Code: Select all

E:\x264\provini\php>cmd /V:ON /c "echo %time% & ( for /L %# in (1,1,1000) do @(
php.exe -r print(sin("3"^)^); > nul: ) ) & echo !time!"
16:40:08,23
16:40:39,43


about 0.030 sec or 30 ms

Ok.

I init the skeleton :)

For now only first quadrant, the other three are easy

One quite fast solution can be read here: http://lab.polygonal.de/?p=205.
Although this is not done using integer arithmetics, but it may easily be converted to.

Thanks penpen the link is very full of trick.

I have tested the fast quadratic version but there is so much error

at 30 degrees the sin(30°)=0,5 but the fast quadratic version is 0,555...

I test quality quadratic version now!

You may think this is cheating, but it certainly is fast, accurate, and pure batch :twisted:

(I did use JScript to initially get the lookup values - not shown)

It provides an accurate sin() value for any integral number of degrees, with 5 decimal digits of precision. The 5 was an arbitrary choice.

An extremely fast direct lookup is used for values between 0 and 359: 0.09 msec on my machine.

A macro is used for any other integral value: 0.81 msec on my machine

I can't figure out why the macro "call" must be within parentheses :?:

Well what to say? it's amazing what you can do!

The use of the macro is brilliant and incomprehensible to me. The code is clearly legible and easy to use.

How can I use a macro in my function? :?

In the meantime, I wrote a new version that has nothing to do with the final version.

The question I asked myself when I read the link posted by penpen is just the limit of the memory space of the variables, so I discarded the version with quick lookup tables because the input function will also have tenths, hundredths and thousandths of a degree.

Thank you very much dbenham

Re: Fastest sen(x) in dos batch

Can I ask why there are all those endlocal?

The only way to pass arguments to the macro is the SET statement in the ELSE branch at the end of the macro. As you can see there is also a SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion that you need to expand variables inside of the command line block in the associated IF branch.
Because of all the other IF statements you need an ENDLOCAL at each point where the macro execution could end up. Otherwise the delayed variable expansion is still valid for the rest of your code (with all its side effects for strings that include exclamation marks).

Some time ago I used a method to perform operations with SIN(x) over degree values (0-360) using only integer operations, that is to say, I always used the result of SIN(x) to multiply it by an integer value and get an integer as result. I used the same method in a Batch program later that I posted in this post (this part appear after 6-CursorPos.exe.hex program):
Aacini wrote:We may even draw trigonometric functions if we define a table of SIN(x) values multiplied by a standard factor (ie: 0xFFFF or 65535):

This way, to get SIN(x) multiplied by a number, just multiply the SIN[%x%] table value by the number and shift the result 16 bits to the right. This method correctly works with signed values because SET /A right shift operation is an aritmethic one (SAR), although the documentation indicate that is "logical shift" (SHR).

For example:

Code: Select all

@echo off 
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

call :DefineSinTable

set st=
For /L %%i in (1,1,52) do set st=#!st!

For /L %%x in (0,4,90) do (
   set /a "int_sinx_result=(SIN[%%x]*52)>>16"
   call set st_=%%st:~0,-!int_sinx_result!%%
   echo(!st_!
)

For /L %%x in (90,-4,0) do (
   set /a "int_sinx_result=(SIN[%%x]*52)>>16"
   call set st_=%%st:~0,-!int_sinx_result!%%
   echo(!st_!
)
goto :EOF

@aGerman

Thank you very much for the explanation aGerman. In the new version I have included the use of expanded variables directly,
then the approach should be different? The code of the new version will come soon.


@Aacini
Aacini I appreciate your intervention. I wanted to ask an explanation of the method used by you to maintain information of the decimal. The number of 16-bit has been chosen as a criterion?

The original method was used in an assembly language program that calculate a series of (x,y) points to draw circles and ellipses via drawpoly BGI function. The radius was a 16-bits number that was multiplied by the value of the Sin table giving the 32-bits result in two separated 16-bits registers, so I directly took the high-order register of the result with no additional operation. This method was at least as fast as the original circle BGI function!

The 16-bits Sin(x) table, (Sin(x)*65535 as unsigned 16-bits value, equivalent to a little less than 5 decimal digits, but more than 4) was enough to draw perfect circles in the screen no matter the radius. If you need more precision, you may use more bits for the Sin(x) table and less for the factor. For example, you may use 24 bits for the Sin(x) table (Sin(x)*16777215, equivalent to more than 7 decimal digits) and 7 bits for the factor (a maximum value of 127), and perform the operation this way: set /A result=(SIN[!x!]*factor)>>24.
