Reg = value
;offset Reg value so that Hi value in Reg becomes 255 mov W, #255 - Hi add Reg, W ;Reg is influenced! ;add to offset value the span value plus one mov W, #(Hi - Lo) + 1 add W, Reg
Carry is set if Lo < Reg < Hi.
If Reg should be restored:
mov W, #Hi - 255 ;restore Reg add Reg, W ;
It works for all values of Hi and Lo although it is not optimal for 255 and 0. It even works for ranges that wrap around 255 back to 0. For instance, if you set Lo to 240 and Hi to 15, it will match 0..15 and also 240..255. And it works for signed numbers. You can set Lo to -3 and Hi to 5 to match -3..+5.
The only requirement is that your assembler must truncate literals to eight bits. If not, you can still use it by masking the literals yourself:
mov W, #(255 - Hi) & $FF mov W, #((Hi - Lo) + 1) & $FF
Lower = 50 Upper = 60 mov W, #195 ;255 - Hi = 255 - 60 = 195 add Reg, W mov W, #11 ;(Hi - Lo) + 1 add W, Reg W = 50 ; lower limit mov W, #195 add Reg, W ;Reg = 50 + 195 = 245 mov W, #11 add W, Reg ;w = 245 + 11 = 0, C = 1, result = OK W = 55 ; in range mov W, #195 add Reg, W ;Reg = 55 + 195 = 250 mov W, #11 add W, Reg ;w = 250 + 11 = 5, C = 1, result = OK W = 60 ; upper limit mov W, #195 add Reg, W ;Reg = 60 + 195 = 255 mov W, #11 add W, Reg ;w = 255 + 11 = 10, C = 1, result = OK W = 49 ; under minimum mov W, #195 add Reg, W ;Reg = 49 + 195 = 244 mov W, #11 add W, Reg ;w = 244 + 11 = 255, C = 0, result = Not OK W = 61 ; over maximum mov W, #195 add Reg, W ;Reg = 61 + 195 = 0 mov W, #11 add W, Reg ;w = 0 + 11 = 11, C = 0, result = Not OK
