    CMPing what to what? (ASM question)

    I had an inkling on the answer because of the direction that MOV, ADD and all thos others work, but when you use the following code:

    CMP AX,BX
    JNB PROC1

    Would it jumo to proc1 if BX was not below AX, or if AX was not below BX. Thanks in advance if you can help.

    My book is all the way downstairs.

    Why don't you try it and see what happens?

    Sometimes, the farthest point from the center is the center itself.

    Your life is your canvas, it's only as beautiful as you paint it.
