Status Flags' Functions

Bit  Name   Function

 0   CF     Carry Flag -- Set on high-order bit carry or borrow; cleared
            otherwise.
 2   PF     Parity Flag -- Set if low-order eight bits of result contain
            an even number of 1 bits; cleared otherwise.
 4   AF     Adjust flag -- Set on carry from or borrow to the low order
            four bits of   AL; cleared otherwise. Used for decimal
            arithmetic.
 6   ZF     Zero Flag -- Set if result is zero; cleared otherwise.
 7   SF     Sign Flag -- Set equal to high-order bit of result (0 is
            positive, 1 if negative).
11   OF     Overflow Flag -- Set if result is too large a positive number
            or too small a negative number (excluding sign-bit) to fit in
            destination operand; cleared otherwise.

Key to Codes

T     = instruction tests flag
M     = instruction modifies flag
        (either sets or resets depending on operands)
0     = instruction resets flag
--    = instruction's effect on flag is undefined
blank = instruction does not affect flag
