Example text

The Carry flag acts as the ninth bit. If the Carry flag is clear at the start of an addition (C =0) and set on the completion (C= 1) the result is greater than 255. It follows that if the Carry flag is set (C= 1) before a subtraction and clear on completion (C=O), the value being subtracted was larger than the original value. Two instructions are available for direct use on the Carry flag: CLC SEC Clear Carry flag (C=O) Set Carry flag (C=1) Two instructions are provided to act on the condition of the Carry flag: BCC BCS 34 Branch on Carry clear (C=O) Branch on Carry Set (C = 1) 8 Addressing Modes I The 6502 and 65C02 have quite small instruction sets when compared with some of their fellow microprocessors- in fact the 6502 has a basic clique of just 56 instructions, while the 65C02 has only 8 more instructions, for a total of 64.

IRQ = 1 If Interrupt disabled. _ _ _ Decimal = 1 If using BCD. ' - - - - - - - Break = 1 If BREAK occured. ' -_ _ _ _ _ _ Not used = 1 always. ' - - - - - - - - - - Overflow = 1 If overflow occurred. ' - - - - - - - - - - Negative = 1 If result negative. 1 Status register flags. Bit 7: The Negative flag (N) In signed binary, the Negative flag is used to determine the sign of the number. If the flag is set (N= 1) the result is negative. If the flag is clear (N=O) the result is positive. 31 However, a whole host of other instructions condition this particular flag , including all the arithmetic and logical functions.

The contents of location 577 (in this case FA) are then loaded into the accumulator. Similarly: STX $72,Y R3 Y register X register r $76 760 $76 T Here the Y register is used as an index to allow the contents of the X register to be stored in memory location 576. This address was obtained by adding the Y register's value, S04, to the specified value, 572. The original contents of location $76 (OA) are overwritten. Note: The Y register can only be used to operate on the X register with instructions such as LOX SFB, Y.
