This instruction starts a new transaction. If the transaction started successfully, the destination register is set to zero. If the transaction failed or was canceled, then all state modifications that were performed transactionally are discarded and the destination register is written with a non-zero value that encodes the cause of the failure.




if !HaveTME() then UNDEFINED; integer t = UInt(Rt);

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose destination register, encoded in the "Rt" field.
