Note: SKPDC is equivalent to BTFSS STATUS, DC and SKPNDC is equivalent to BTFSC STATUS, DC
Same code optimized for the PIC18F instruction set:
binary_to_bcd: clrf hundreds swapf bin, W, A ; swap the nibbles addwf bin, W, A ; so we can add the upper to the lower andlw B'00001111' ; and lose the upper nibble (W is in BCD from now on) btfsc STATUS, DC, A ; if we carried a one (upper + lower > 16) addlw 0x16 ; add 16 (the place value) (1s + 16 * 10s) daw ; check for digit overflows btfsc bin, 4, A ; 16's place addlw 0x16  1 ; add 16  1 btfsc bin, 5, A ; 32nd's place addlw 0x30 ; add 32  2 btfsc bin, 6, A ; 64th's place addlw 0x60 ; add 64  4 btfsc bin, 7, A ; 128th's place addlw 0x20 ; add 128  8 % 100 daw ; check for digit overflows rlcf hundreds, F ; pop carry in hundreds' LSB movwf tens_and_ones btfsc bin,7, A ; remember adding 28  8 for 128? incf hundreds, F ; add the missing 100 if bit 7 is set return
Don't need the hundreds? Get rid of everything after the second daw up to the return. The result will end up in W in that case, just add a movwf if the result is needed elsewhere. Want to pass in the byte in W? Just add a movwf bin at the beginning.
Comments:
I am a Newbie and this is the exact information i was looking for, it works great. The only thing is i don't know how this code actually works, maybe i try to figure it out when i learn more about asm.+
