CPU_AND - Linux


The CPU_AND command is a versatile tool for manipulating and analyzing CPU data. It allows users to perform logical operations on CPU information, enabling them to extract specific data, perform comparisons, and make informed decisions based on CPU performance metrics.


CPU_AND [options] <input> <mask>


  • -h, –help: Display usage information.
  • -v, –version: Print version information and exit.
  • -r, –register: Specify a specific CPU register to operate on (e.g., eax, ebx). By default, all registers are included.
  • -m, –mask: Specify a hexadecimal mask to perform the logical operation.
  • -a, –all: Output all results, even if identical to the input.
  • -s, –summary: Provide a summary of the logical operations performed.


Get the value of the EAX register and mask it with 0xFF:

CPU_AND -r eax -m 0xFF

Perform a logical AND operation on all registers using a mask of 0x1234:

CPU_AND -m 0x1234

Display only results that differ from the input:

CPU_AND -a -m 0x0000FFFF

Summarize the logical operations performed:


Common Issues

  • Incorrect mask value: Ensure the mask value is a valid hexadecimal number.
  • Unsupported register: If a specified register is not supported by the system, an error message will be displayed.
  • Empty input: The input file or stream must contain valid CPU data for the command to operate correctly.


CPU_AND can be integrated with other Linux commands to create powerful data analysis pipelines. For example, it can be combined with grep to filter specific data, or with awk to perform more complex manipulations.
