Description

5A

mul

Multiplies two values on the stack.

The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:

  1. value1 is pushed onto the stack.

  2. value2 is pushed onto the stack.

  3. value2 and value1 are popped from the stack; value1 is multiplied by value2.

  4. The result is pushed onto the stack.

The mul instruction multiplies value1 by value2 and pushes the result on the stack. Integer operations silently truncate the upper bits on overflow.

See Mul_Ovf for an integer-specific multiply operation with overflow handling.

For floating-point types, 0 * infinity = NaN.

The following Emit method overload can use the mul opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode)
