And Memory With Accumulator
Opcode: AND
Operation: A & M → A
Status Register: Status-List.png

AND (And Memory With Accumulator) performs a logical AND on the operand and the accumulator and stores the result in the accumulator. This opcode is similar in function to ORA and EOR.


This pseudo C code shows how the AND opcode functions when it is executed.

Operand &= ACCUMULATOR        // AND the two values together.
SET_NEGATIVE(Operand);        // Clears the Negative Flag if the Operand is $#00-7F, otherwise sets it.
SET_ZERO(Operand);            // Sets the Zero Flag if the Operand is $#00, otherwise clears it.
ACCUMULATOR = Operand;        // Stores the Operand in the Accumulator Register.
