Maths (Arithmetic): LL129 (Disc version)

Name: LL129 [View in context] Type: Subroutine Category: Maths (Arithmetic) Summary: Calculate Q = XX12+2, A = S EOR XX12+3 and (S R) = |S R|
Do the following, in this order: Q = XX12+2 A = S EOR XX12+3 (S R) = |S R| This sets up the variables required above to calculate (S R) / XX12+2 and give the result the opposite sign to XX13+3.
.LL129 LDX XX12+2 \ Set Q = XX12+2 STX Q LDA S \ If S is positive, jump to LL127 BPL LL127 LDA #0 \ Otherwise set R = -R SEC SBC R STA R LDA S \ Push S onto the stack PHA EOR #%11111111 \ Set S = ~S + 1 + C ADC #0 STA S PLA \ Pull the original, negative S from the stack into A .LL127 EOR XX12+3 \ Set A = original argument S EOR'd with XX12+3 RTS \ Return from the subroutine
