Say if a computer with an ALU, containing the following operations,
ADD, SUB, DIV, MUL, SHL, SHR, NOT, OR, XOR AND
How can the ALU perform the conditional statement for the branch?
Say, let A be register1
And let B be register2
And let C be tempRegister
(A - B) --> C //perform ALU's SUB, and store result of A - B in C
The next part is where I am stuck, and I am stuck on how will the ALU perform this, as i can only use the provided operations above, I think?
If (C == 0) //if C is zero (A and B are equal)
//set program counter to the offset
Thanks in advance for anyone who took their time to read this!
