Often we have a value Y (like the index to a circular buffer) that normally increases by 1 each iteration, but that we want to make sure stays in the range 0 <= Y < End. by forcing Y back to zero when it runs off the end of its range.
; if( w <= Y ){ Y = 0; }; ; Y is 8 bits ; by David Cary ; useful for circular buffers. ; Load the upper limit into w  perhaps ; movlw End ; when End is a constant ; movfw End ; when End is a variable subwf Y,w skpnc clrf Y ; now 0 <= Y < End.
[FIXME: 16 bit version ?]
More sophisticated modulus routines are available (typically wrapped up in a routine that calculates both (A/B) and (A MOD B) at once).
