What is the difference between the shift and rotate instructions?

  Shared By: Evan Evans    Date: Sep 04    Category: Assembly Language    Views: 8643

Answer:

A rotate instruction is a closed loop instruction. That is, the data moved out at one end is put back in at the other end. The shift instruction loses the data that is moved out of the last bit locations.
