STR, unprivileged

10.135 STR, unprivileged

Unprivileged Store, byte, halfword, or word.


STR{type}T{cond} Rt, [Rn {, #offset}] ; immediate offset (Thumb, 32-bit encoding only)
STR{type}T{cond} Rt, [Rn] {, #offset} ; post-indexed (ARM only)
STR{type}T{cond} Rt, [Rn], ±Rm {, shift} ; post-indexed (register) (ARM only)
can be any one of:
omitted, for Word.
is an optional condition code.
is the register to load or store.
is the register on which the memory address is based.
is an offset. If offset is omitted, the address is the value in Rn.
is a register containing a value to be used as the offset. Rm must not be PC.
is an optional shift.


When these instructions are executed by privileged software, they access memory with the same restrictions as they would have if they were executed by unprivileged software.
When executed by unprivileged software, these instructions behave in exactly the same way as the corresponding store instruction, for example STRBT behaves in the same way as STRB.

Offset ranges and architectures

The following table shows the ranges of offsets and availability of this instruction:

Table 10-17 Offsets and architectures, STR (User mode)

Instruction Immediate offset Post-indexed +/–Rm a shift Arch.
ARM, word or byte Not available –4095 to 4095 +/–Rm LSL #0-31 All
        LSR #1-32  
        ASR #1-32  
        ROR #1-31  
ARM, halfword Not available –255 to 255 +/–Rm Not available T2
Thumb 32-bit encoding, word, halfword, or byte 0 to 255 Not available Not available T2

Notes about the Architecture column

Entries in the Architecture column indicate that the instructions are available as follows:
All versions of the ARM architecture.
The ARMv6T2 and above architectures.
