Thread: HALT instruction
face BY : piclist@xargs.com

I came across some code which included the HALT instruction, and can't
find any documentation as to what it is.  MPASM accepts the
instruction, and generates an opcode for it for both PIC16 and PIC18
families.  MPLAB, however, doesn't disassemble it in the program
memory window.  Does anyone know what it's for?
