What is Alu: Definition and 19 Discussions

In Akkadian and Sumerian mythology, Alû is a vengeful spirit of the Utukku that goes down to the underworld Kur. The demon has no mouth, lips or ears. It roams at night and terrifies people while they sleep, and possession by Alû results in unconsciousness and coma; in this manner it resembles creatures such as the mara, and incubus, which are invoked to explain sleep paralysis. In Akkadian and Sumerian mythology, it is associated with other demons like Gallu and Lilu.

    In a ALU in a simple processor, what does the operation BNEQZ mean?

    TL;DR Summary: So I'm doing this coding assignment that involves a simple processor with an ALU. I have a list of operation of the ALU but I don't understand one operation called BNEQZ. I have the list of operation below and an example of it being used to form some loop. Would be very grateful...

    ALU status register carry equation

    I was wondering what the carry (C) equation for the logic gates would be in an ALU status register? I originally thought that it was C equals the last carry output. However, my colleagues tell me its C equals to the sum of the last bit primed AND the last carry output. Can someone clarify my...
