Performs an addition with carry of the contents of a general-purpose register and an immediate value.
See "Extended Mnemonics of Fixed-Point Arithmetic Instructions" for more information.
The addic. and ai. instructions place the sum of the contents of general-purpose register (GPR) RA and a 16-bit signed integer, SI, into the target GPR RT.
The 16-bit integer SI provided as immediate data is sign-extended to 32 bits prior to carrying out the addition operation.
The addic. and ai. instructions have one syntax form and can set the Carry Bit of the Fixed-Point Exception Register. These instructions also affect Condition Register Field 0.
|RT||Specifies target general-purpose register where result of operation is stored.|
|RA||Specifies source general-purpose register for operation.|
|SI||Specifies 16-bit signed integer for operation.|
The following code adds a 16-bit signed integer to the contents of GPR 4, stores the result in GPR 6, and sets the Fixed-Point Exception Register Carry bit and Condition Register Field 0 to reflect the result of the operation:
# Assume GPR 4 contains 0xEFFF FFFF. addic. 6,4,0x1000 # GPR 6 now contains 0xF000 0FFF.
