Hi
i wonder if i need to perform compare and branches instructions inside the alu.
a branch is usually not the task of an ALU
..but the compare usually is performed as a subtract ... by at least setting some flags...

thanks for the reply,
so we perform arithmetical, logical, compare, jump&link operations in the ALU right?
 

Hi,

sorry for not being clear enough.
Again: I don´t think a "jump" or "branch" belongs to the ALU.

There are internet sites like wikipedia and many others that more exactly define what´s an ALU.
